1 Deployable Origami

In this project, we are interested in exploring the underlying geometric rationalities for deployable and reconfigurable Kresling origami patterns. Through computational design tools, we identify a series of Kresling patterns that are both deployable and reconfigurable. The beauty of pure geometry principles is evaluated and appreciated; we are excited about the findings.
