Paper Architecture / Ingrid Siliakus

Paper Architecture / Ingrid Siliakus

Dutch artist Ingrid Siliakus has been designing and building paper architecture ever since she began studying the work of Japanese architect Masahiro Chatani, the alleged founder of this origami-like model-making process.

Siliakus’s intricate designs emerge from single pieces of paper, their forms finalised after the artist experiments with countless trial runs and prototypes. Her meticulous metropolises layer paper silhouettes of buildings with their own cut-out negatives and the delicate shadows cast by their fragile facades — via Architizer
