Origami Christmas Tree

“Architect’s Christmas Tree” made from architectural drawings

As the holiday season approaches, I decided to take a little break and have some fun. Every year I try to make something architecture-related by recycling some of the paper from work. This year I made an origami Christmas tree with some drawings. I call it “the architect’s christmas tree”. I like the sculptural yet structural quality of it. It’s not super easy, but it’s also very forgiving. The print on the paper gives it some texture and any imperfection just makes it more organic. You can of course also use any other paper- renderings, magazines, sheet music etc.

You can make your own by clicking on this link or watching this youtube video:

Have a witty, classy and environmentally-friendly christmas. Enjoy!
