Jury Comments

“A great solution to the design brief which as an origami artist I find attractive and practical.”
-David Brill 

“A generally very successful submission, well presented, well-conceived and well designed. The folding is entirely appropriate to the concept. It is a folded form that could continue to develop through many iterations, at many scales and with many different materials, to create a diversity of temporary, semi-permanent and permanent structures.”
-Paul Jackson
