Our final task was to make a presentation model that could show the upright position of our card structure. We made this out of one piece of card and folded it into shape.

We started construction on day four. Our design fitted into a grid with 4 rows and 5 columns of 600mm by 900mm each of these pieces is scored to create our origami design. The sections were attached with staples and tape on the tabs.

Erecting our shelter in All Saints Park. With the help of a passer by, we expanded our shelter over string between two trees.

Before presenting our Design we made a 1:1 component to show how the design expands and flattens. I also used the SketchUp model to give an impression of how the shelter might be used.

On the second day we fine tuned our design. We found the fold pattern we chose did not go flat enough for the structure to be feasibly transported. To solve this we added a Y shaped fold down the middle of the horizontal folds. This idea came from looking at models we had made on day one.

The next step was model our shelter on SketchUp. This helped us present our idea to the group on day three. It also made it easy to show how the design could be expanded.

I plan to use this origami surface to develop into a shelter. It looks complex but can easily be divided into a grid and repeated.

After practicing origami folding techniques on day one, we started applying our shapes into a shelter for after a disaster has struck.
