Aula Buzano, DISMA-Politecnico di Torino – Duca degli Abruzzi, 24

Jun Mitani, professor at the University of Tsukuba (Dept. of Computer Science),

Japan, will be guest at DISMA on December 2nd and 3rd 2015; his main research field

is computer graphics (geometric modeling and computational

On December 3rd, Professor Mitani will deliver two lectures followed by an origami

workshop according to the following schedule:

9.30 Computational Origami Art (Part I)

10.30 Coffee break

11.00 Computational Origami Art

The first lecture will have general and basic content, while the second one will be more

technical and will also include a short origami workshop (confirmation of people attending

Part II is welcome).


“Origami has been studied for long time mainly in the field of mathematics. Based on the

origami theories constructed by the researchers, now we can design complicated origami

pieces from a single sheet of paper. Today, there exists several software tools on which

the algorithms for generating origami geometries are implemented.In this talk, I will

introduce some my origami design tools which help to design 3D origami; the designed

origami pieces sometimes have curved folds. By implementing an interactive design

interface, it became possible to design variety of origami artworks based on quick trial-

and-error processes. The algorithms used inside of the software will be explained. A live

demo for designing on the software will also be presented in this talk.”
