Origami is a Japanese word that means 'folding paper'. Origami is often used to create models of animals and birds and to make boxes and decorations but it can also be used to construct unusual mathematical objects, tiling patterns (tessellations) and as an easy way to model polyhedra.
- Verity's kite - an origami tiling project
- 2-way tube - a paradoxical object
- Easy cube - a simple modular polyhedron
