Oritecture (Advanced origami in design) comes from the words - Origami +Architecture. Signifying the infinite possibilities of the same. The 3-day Oritecture Workshop is your gateway into the most exciting new field of design research.
While we think of origami as art, it is increasingly being used by companies and researchers in space, medicine, robotics, architecture, public safety and the military to solve vexing design problems, often to fit big things into small spaces.
A Step Forward in Design Research and Exploration
With Oritecture Workshop, participants from all design backgrounds will get hands-on experience in experimenting with basics as well as advanced techniques in Origami. Understanding and applying these basic logics to anything you make will help you stand out and push the envelope of design a bit further. Experiment with materials such as wood, plastic, Tyvek, and Fabric so that your future possibilities of creation are limitless.
What to Expect from the Workshop?
The crux of Origami - Lecture and hands-on work to crack the basics of Origami design.
Folding Techniques - An intensive coursework involving the techniques that go behind origami.
Explore Materiality - Learn to apply origami techniques to varied materials like Tyvek, wood, paper & plastics.
Fabrication Techniques - Be the first to learn an upcoming field of design. Get exposed & explore Oritecture design in India.
Add to Portfolio - Final design output will range from a flat-pack shelter to chair design. You get to choose - what to build and actually get all the assistance to help you make it.
Who is the lead mentor for the Oritecture Workshop?
Ankon Mitra is an architect by training and artist by temperament, with a keen interest in geometry & mathematics of nature. A gold medalist (SPA, Delhi) and Director at Hexagramm Design Pvt. Ltd. he has intensive research in tessellating geometries, folding processes in nature and Origami in the paper, plastics and metals. He has conducted scores of workshops on geometry & origami related to Fashion, Industrial design and Architecture along with numerous event installations in India.
