Why: Ravi Apte posted photo diagrams for this beautiful, abstract model on his website, raviapte.com, so I thought I’d give it a try. (Update, spring 2014: the website appears to be defunct. It has since been published and diagrammed elsewhere, see above.)
This is a fun exploration of what you can do with the whole crossed-box pleat folding thing. Fujimoto-sensei called it ajisai ori or “hydrangea folding” since you can use it to produce forms that look like multi-petalled hydrangea blossoms. Very cool.
