Modular ③ – many units

This page lists modular origami models made from a high number of units (more than 90 and not more than 270).

Mansion

Mansion

An origami mansion, folded using several variants of my Building Block Units (BBU). I re-used many of the modules which were earlier used for The Tower of Ba...

Palace of Culture

Palace of Culture

The Palace of Culture and Science (Pałac Kultury i Nauki) is a 250 m tall building which was erected in Warsaw in the 1950’s as a sign of Soviet domination. ...

Taipei 101

Taipei 101

Modular origami rendition of Taipei 101, one of the world’s tallest buildings. I thought reproducing this structure’s characteristic staggered facade in orig...

The Tower of Babel

The Tower of Babel

This rendition of the Tower of Babel consists of a series of square platforms placed one on top of another and rotated by 45 degrees at each level. This frac...

Hamiltonia Cycle of the Cube

Hamiltonia Cycle of the Cube

A Hamiltonian cycle is a closed path on a polyhedron which visits each vertex exactly once. This model represents such a path for a cube. It can also be used...

Egyptian Pyramid

Egyptian Pyramid

This design can be extended indefinitely by adding more and more levels (a smaller, single-level variant is also possible). The walls are angled at 45 degree...

Menger Sponge, level 1½ (StEM)

Menger Sponge, level 1½ (StEM)

The modules’ shape makes this level 1 model look even closer to a level 2 model than the Penultimate Module version. The hole in each small square is exactly...

Ticket Menger Sponge

Ticket Menger Sponge

Model folded from Warsaw public transport tickets (back side with magnetic strip visible). 192 modules: 120 for the body and 72 for coating.

Modified Buckyball (120 edges)

Modified Buckyball (120 edges)

This is my experiment in modular origami made from two different types of units: 60 PHiZZ and 60 Penultimate units. These two kinds of modules are quite simi...

Large Icosahedron

Large Icosahedron

This icosahedron has nine triangular pyramids pointing inwards on each face. The same shape can also be described as a truncated icosahedron whose each face ...

Steinhaus Puzzle

Steinhaus Puzzle

This puzzle, described in Hugo Steinhaus’ book Kalejdoskop matematyczny (Mathematical Snapshots, literally Mathematical Kaleidoscope) consists of six pieces,...

Menger Sponge, level 1½ (Penultimate unit)

Menger Sponge, level 1½ (Penultimate unit)

Thanks to the modules’ shape and the holes created in the spaces between them, this model looks almost like a level 2 Menger sponge even though it is actuall...
