Here’s a short video I knocked together on how to fold a hyperbolic paraboloid, which is a folding exercise from the Bauhaus school (notably from Josef Albers). I learned about this model ages ago, but the great research work of Erik and Marty Demaine clued me in to the real history behind this piece, as well as numerous other tessellated & geometrical folding patterns!
This folding method I demonstrate is a fast way of doing it, and the method I use when teaching classes as it saves a massive amount of time. I highly recommend giving this model a try!
I rally enjoy these forms, and it has led me to exploring the same idea with other shapes. The images can be seen in a link to my photo album.
