Student in architecture at the Architectural Association in London, Daniel Piker experimenting with folding paper to create self-supporting structures in three dimensions. Discover.
Discover below the video "Deployable / Transformable Structures" with some of the models developed by Daniel Piker:
To learn more about the structural folds, visit the blog of Daniel Piker "Space Symmetry Structure".

In the same spirit and to find a practical application of this kind of research, you can also see our recent article "Ply Swiss" dedicated to deaconesses temporary chapel of Saint-Loup. Result of collaboration between researchers and architects, the structure of this place of worship is based in fact directly from the art of origami. To read the rest is here.
