Container Origami

For the FollyDock competiton to design follies for the Rotterdam Heijplaat, Ron Nout, Wouter Roeterink, Femke Bijlsma and I entered some cardboard models of containers folded like origami. We were selected to present a larger model at the NAi [Dutch Architecture Institute]. Ron welded it out of discarded radiators. The last step was to have the real folly calculated, welded, painted, assembled, transported and placed at the Heijplaat location, where it will remain as part of the Rotterdam Sculpture Collection.
