Compound Polyhedra - Modular Origami
Origami experts know that understanding shape and geometry is vital. But building many beautiful complex shapes is not a simple matter. Mathematics at school or college rarely prepares us for such a practical task.
What origami method could possibly build complex structures like compound polyhedra?
Fergus Currie's book of geometric models of advanced modular origami has full instructions and diagrams on how to make elegant, beautiful and practical models such as:
- The Compound of Two Cubes
- The Compound of Two Tetrahedra
- The Compound of the Octahedron and the Cube
- The Compound of Three Cubes
- The Compound of Five Octahedra
- The Compound of Three Octahedra
- The Compound of Three Tetrahedra
- The Compound of the Icosahedron and the Dodecahedron
- The Small Triambic Icosahedron (STI)
- and The Compound of the STI and the Dodecahedron.
It also includes an introduction with sections on the mathematics behind the models; a short history of modular origami; a section on tools and folding techniques, and a gallery of the finished models that are presented in the book.
Constructing such complex origami structures is not easy. Tarquin has over 50 years experience of papercraft, origami and mathematics for young and old. In full colour, the book is practical and systematic - the results you will achieve are stunning.
Origami mastery depends on understanding complex shapes.
With Fergus Currie's help, exploring compound polyhedra with modular origami will be a massive step to that understanding.
