"Yee (yes, just Yee) is a world-renowned papercrafter, and in "Origami Architecture" he offers readers a global portfolio of construction projects, with step-by-step instructions for paper models of 16 landmarks, from the Arc de Triomphe to Westminster Palace. After a shopping list of suitable materials and necessary tools, Yee provides general guidelines and tips, some of which have the tenor of fortune cookies, as applicable to daily life as they are to papercraft: "You must understand completely what you are trying to do before you do it." "What's notable about these paper replicas is how much detail that plain white paper can illuminate. When you strip away the model's materiality, the simple interface of light and shade highlights the striking beauty of the buildings' architectural outlines. That such intricate crafts can be folded flat only adds to their mystery."--"ARCHITECT"
