Author tells stories with origami

MAINEVILLE, OH (FOX19) – Students at Little Miami elementary and primary schools learned the ancient art of origami recently when children’s author Christine Petrell Kallevig brought “Storigami” to their buildings.

Kallevig, who has written a number of children’s stories, used paper folding illustrate a number of stories she shared with students in Butlerville, Maineville and Salem Twp. schools. Students learned how to fold paper cranes and even how to make them “flap.”

Kallevig’s visit was sponsored by the PTOs of each building.

This folding shelter designed by Doowon Suh is as elementary as it gets – a series of sheets that unfold like origami to form a robust but basic building.

Like nesting paper cranes, in its most compact form, each module can be stacked on its siblings, making it easy to pack and ship in containers or store until deployed.

The modules are bare bones for maximum adaptive capability – they can emergency homes or hospital pods, temporary stores or community rooms.
