550: Multi-Stage Clover Tessellation

This torturous little bugger of a tessellation seemed to eat paper like nothing else:550multistageclover

Shuzo Fujimoto’s design of a clover-like tessellation that spreads from a central point is an interesting exercise in layer rearrangement, resulting in a lovely eye-popping pyramid-like structure that has dimensionality. The resultant folded form is much less than a 1/4 the size of the original sheet and is very dense in places and is naturally concave on the underside.550multistagecloverdev

As usual, folded in the boring bits between being asked for help by my students, I enjoyed the planning and mindset necessary to successfully replicate this pattern – thanks to Sara ¬†Adam’s Video, the fold ended up being easier than I first thought.
