Today, when life improves, people have a hobby of collecting valuable items. Some people like to collect antiques such as stamps, architectural models, artwork, antique objects, antique cars… The most innovative and unique are the architectural models. They are made from different materials such as iron, copper, silver. Different materials have different values that depend on your ability. Many people who like to collect the architectural models their income is not high enough to own expensive models. In response to that interest, the architecture pop-up model was born, that is a unique paper art.
Many people think that paper is not as valuable as antiques. That’s not true! The unique architecture pop-up is modern Kirigami art. Modern Kirigami art is also called Origamic Architecture (OA) that is the art of sculpture on paper. OA involves the three dimensions of space and architecture, expressed on paper to create architectural works. In order to create a 3D image of the work, you must have skills as an architect. OA’s father is Masahiro Chatani who is a professor at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. He used Origami (paper-folding) and Kirigami (paper-cutting) techniques as well as his experience in architectural design to create complex models, he creates amazing effects with light and shadow. He believes that OA is the best way to teach architectural design and architectural appreciation. At the exhibition, Masahiro Chatani talked about his art “OA will help people recognize the value of the country and its history through the architectural art described in it. This is one of the best ways to keep the national pride, preserve the heritage of the country, popularize it and bring it to the world.” Architecture pop-up models are extremely valuable.
Some people think it is difficult to own models because of their great value. They are very valuable, but to own them is quite easy and the cost of investment is not high. You just work with professional companions, with creative minds and high Kirigami skills. You can design architecture pop-up models with their own ideas, then describe them to create complete masterpieces. Some of the collections have been completed as old buildings, world wonders, peaceful symbols, ancient churches… The architectural pop-up models also become unique gifts that express love and wisdom.
To invest in models is not difficult, you can choose the paper types that depend on your ability. You can also choose the size you want as the pop-up cards, or the architecture pop-up models from small to large. That does not mean it’s easy to create them. You need to find the reputable companions that I mentioned above. Meet artisans at Paper Art Viet to get an excellent collection.
