A new origami design of mine, called Tympanum Corrugation because it resembles the tympanum of a Greek temple. The idea came to me after I designed this dog house — the corrugation is just the roof, repeated side by side as a tessellation.

This model has a slight tendency to curl, but an iso-area variant is also possible which lacks the tension of the basic variant and can lay completely flat.
