Flower Tessellation

Designed and Folded by Evan Zodl


I have been working on this design for the past few days, and I have to say that I am quite satisfied with the result! I originally started off designing an octagonal flower tessellation molecule from a square grid, but I had trouble finding a way to nicely tessellate it. Instead, I tried to find the triangle grid analogue of my original molecule, and after tessellating it, I came up with this 3.6.3.6. tessellation!

This model was recently featured in the Surface to Structure origami exhibition at The Cooper Union in New York City. Find out more here!

      Thank you for your interest in my design. I don’t have any plans to make a video on this due to the complexity of the collapse. However, you can find the crease pattern over on the “Diagrams & CPs” page if you are interested ( http://ez-origami.com/diagrams/ ). If you get stuck or have any additional questions, feel free to contact me!
