Origami in Architecture, Fashion, and Production

Platform21 = Folding (I absolutely adore this dress.)

Thanks to an e-mail from Christiane Bettens I am posting some links.  There is a design exhibition in Amsterdam.  It has a cross section of participants from Robert Lang to Sophia Vyzoviti.  Fashion designers to architects with P.H.D’s populate this show in a diverse approach to an art form that I have come to appreciate in its many veins.  The second link takes you to a spot where you can find online foldables that relate to this show.

While I am not sure how I feel on the aesthetic or practicality of designer Marloes ten Bhömer,
