Shuzo Fujimoto’s Hydrangea can be used as a modular unit. The method was first published by Meenakshi Mukerji and then reinvented independently by myself. I plan to publish a tutorial on this subject soon [update: here it is].

The different colors of the different levels of the hydrangeas are a result of using Harmony paper with a radial gradient pattern.

You can compare this model to my older fold and to the Hydrangea Icosahedron which is made in the same way but uses 30 rather than just 6 units.
