Description: Modular Origami is a branch of the art of paperfolding. The earliest modular origami is probably Asian (Japanese, Chinese) in origin. Unlike regular origami, where a figure or sculpture such as a crane, frog or airplane is made from a single sheet of paper (usually square) without glue or cutting, modular origami figures are built up from multiple individually folded pieces, usually identical. Modular origami is often very geometric. Primarily Vann's own designs and developments, with examples of other significant modular origami works and favorite models by other modular origami creators. This page provides a path to Vann's other Origami Web sites and concentrates on the more geometric and mathematical aspects of modular origami.
