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 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!
