Origami Exploding Brick Wall Tessellation (32X32 Grid)

Origami Exploding Brick Wall Tessellation (32X32 Grid)


hey guys what’s up Jeremy Shafer here in
this tutorial I’m gonna show you how to fold this ISO area version of the
classic great wall consolation designed by Yoshihide Momotani about 40
years ago want to learn how to fold it ready set here goes
so for this model I used a 10 inch square of kami and that’s what I’m
going to use for this tutorial so might as well use brown let’s begin white side
up and fold in half if you want you can just use printer paper cut square try to
make really precise folds and crease sharply now unfold and fold the bottom
edge to the crease and unfold rotate and fold this edge to
here and unfold and turn over fold this middle crease up to here and flatten so it’s like that and now bring this flap up to here and flatten and fold this edge to
here okay turn over right the left and fold
the flap down on the crease and fold in half and now unfold and we have colored
side up fold this edge to here and flatten so it’s like that and now skip this crease
and lift this crease up and fold it to this crease and so on and fold the bottom edge to here and rotate and now we’re going to turn
these three pages so turn the page up like this make sure it aligns and flatten and turn this page and this one and fold the bottom edge to this crease okay now fold two units up one two and
fold in half so fold one unit down and let’s do it again grab all of the layers
fold two units up and fold all layers down and once again grab all of the layers down okay and turn over top to bottom and fold in half okay now we’re going to go from 16 to 32
so completely unfold and we have colored side up and fold not the first crease
but the second crease lift it up and fold it on to the first crease and flatten so we’re like this and grab not this crease but the next one and lift it up and so on
and go all the way down and pull the bottom edge to the nearest
crease okay this is what it should look like and now rotate and let’s turn all
of these pages upward here goes and I’m going to ask for this file and fold the bottom edge to the nearest
crease okay here we go
two units up when you knit that units up one unit down grab all the layers two
units up when it down and so on and if you get lost at this point you can just
make a paper fan all right so here we have the paper divided into 32 now
unfold now we are on the colored side and we’re going to do
the whole thing so here goes and for this part I am
going to just fast forward it willfully you get the idea right now now unfold completely and fold in half and pull this bottom edge up one unit
and let this back flap swing down like that okay
and now bring this crease to that one so we have two pleats next to each other
and fold those all the way the other side and send it all the way back and
now go four units 1 2 3 4 and make a beat here and wait and now make another
beat that is right next to it and send it all the way back so we have 4 units
or units and let’s do another 4 units here 3 and make one that joins it and forty
minutes and that’s it and flat back all right so you should have four units
four units or yeah that’s 20 units and on the bottom two units two units two
units and three-fifths and now hold in tap and we’re going to do the same thing
so fold the bottom edge up one unit and as you do that you can let this flap
swing down and okay so here we have one fleet let’s make
this beat here and make the two pleats come together okay and four units make a beat like
this and make another beat right next to it that’s like that for units or units and
let’s do four units over here and make a pleat and send it all the way back and
make a piece next to it and so on before you all right so that’s what it looks like
now let’s turn over and take this flap and turn the page and when you do you
want to pinch these two edges together as you flatten so it’s like that and now
do the same thing here make sure that these edges line up
really well that’ll make the next fold easier and continue like this and again and one last fold here okay one row is
done and now we’re going to do the same thing
here but on the interior you have to do it not only on this side but also here it’s like that and do the same thing
here just drag it down and repeat and so on and hopefully you
get the idea you have to do that on all the rest of it and I’m going to fast
forward this part you okay now turn over and rotate and now
just separate these slats and flatten like that again it was like this and you
just separate them and flapped it and now hold these two separate them and
flatten and these two and so on okay now next row over here and Clapton
and so on and I’m going to fast forward this part if you have trouble opening them you can
just open those edges and now they flatten easily all right now rotate and we have these
three by four rectangles on each one do this and rotate and do the same thing with
these three by four rectangles and I’m going to fast forward this part and now
turn over top the bottom and fold this flap up like that and same here just the
single layers and so on ahead rotate to the other side and do the same thing and okay and now we have these three by
four rectangles let’s do the same thing and rotate and same thing on this side okay and turn over it off the bottom and
pull this flap up and so on okay do the same thing and we are done there it is
32 Rick’s on this side and 32 on this side and watch them explode it curves alright so there you guys have it oh it
looks like a castle it kind of looks like an inverted castle so if you use
the magic cube technique that I taught here and use the one eye then you can
maybe get it to invert and rotate right before your very eyes so alright I hope
you guys enjoyed holding that and okay I did that come on falling

  1. Jeremy today I bought a book because it was the book fair I bought 3 one about the movie frozen for my sister,Minecraft book for my older brother and one about Origami it comes with Ten Inch Square of origami paper you have to cut it out and it teaches you how to do origami models it is awesome it’s called my first origami fun search it up on safari

  2. Can you please make the barbershop quartet pleeeeeaaaassseee. I cannot fold it no matter how hard I try, but it looks like such a cool model.

  3. Soooo I made this model and I am very pleased with it,but when I was making the bricks, it decided to rip,but in general it was fun making it.In total it took me 2 hours and 45 minutes to fold this.

  4. There's something so Mr. Rogers about your channel, I love it. Maybe it's the positivity, the imagination and creativity. The music definitely adds to this nostalgic similarity. 🙂 Thanks for making such nice videos.

  5. Can you teach more flasher even you just make a video of it but that brick is awesome my friend be like wow how can u fold it?

  6. Hey Jeremy I have followed you since a lot of time before but then I forgot you but find you again. I made this model and the little one. I like origami like since I was 5-years old and you inspired me to. In my school when they make origami they make it horribly but they appreciate my talent. Thank you Jeremy for inspiring me to make origami. If I had not followed you I could not make origami.
    Thanks Jeremy for all you have given to me

  7. OMG! I just realized if you put the model on a light , you can see 1 bone in each brick!

    New: I think it only works with printer paper though, Just try it with any paper

  8. something about folding this is very satisfying, also I decided to go crazy and fold it on a 64×64 grid and it looks AMAZING!!!

  9. But just saying its pretty easy for me, i got it on my first try but i used normal origami paper so there were some rips but no worries

  10. What I find Very Interesting is: I made the 8 Bricks on each side with 16 x 16 Grid but in making the 32 by 32 Grid we get 32 Bricks on each Side, How Amazing Origami is!

  11. I actually bought your origami book over 10 years ago!!! I just found you on here tonight!! So glad you have YouTube tutorials, makes things so much easier! 🙂

  12. Awesome! That was Easy! I folded the 16 by 16 grid and the 32 by 32 grid! I love these! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
