  • Keywords: curved folding, origami, computational design, assembly strategy, structural folding
Inspired by the work of David Huffman, especially his research on cones, this work investigates one particular strategy to generate freestanding structures from assemblies of folded cones. The reflective folding strategy described by Huffman is adapted to generate stable elements consisting of folded sheet material that are assembled into a larger structure. After discussing a general approach of cone assemblies a particular strategy named stacked cones, to generate double-layered structures is explained in detail on a scale one prototype entirely fabricated from paper.
