With a preface by Mark Bolitho
Papers on art and design, education, history and science. Papers published range from the exploration of folding in architecture, to presenting folding sculpture as contemporary art. There are also studies of new creative folding processes and methods. The papers categorised as Science include research into new and emerging research areas.
Volume 2: Mathematics
With a preface by Thomas Hull
Papers on the mathematics of folding. Papers range from exploration of the mathematics inherent in folded structures, to the use of folding techniques to explore and illustrate mathematical concepts. Several papers look into the mathematics connected with specific folding structures, including the Miura-ori pattern and origami tessellations.
Volume 3: Engineering One and Volume 4: Engineering Two
With a preface by Zhong You
Papers on engineering. Papers published include research into diverse folding applications and products, adding strength to defensive shields, reinforcing tube strength, development of space sails, and the applications of folding processes to robotics. Some papers also explore the mechanical properties of the Miura fold, curved folding, and tessellations.
You can also buy the 7OSME Set.
Origami7 contains a unique collection of papers. Thanks to the efforts of the review team and the authors, who wrote, re-wrote and responded to reviews, the collection represents the leading edge of applied origami research.
