loves2experiment, I just reread your earlier post and am very interested in hearing a bit more about "paper architecture"... I'm not sure what all the term means even, but I saw some paper (actually cardstock, I think) houses and other structures in the workroom of the art dept. at a local college, and was totally fascinated
. Could you enlighten me a bit?

Paper architecture (as some folks know it) is often used interchangeably with the term 'origamic architecture'. There are tons of terrific examples of origamic architecture online (do a google search with the words "origamic architecture). Basically, it involves using cardstock or other types of paper to create structures and forms. The end result is often quite stunning and its beauty lies in its simplicity and well-defined lines. I'm not quite sure if that was what you saw in the workroom of the art department. It might well have been paper architecture, or it could be model representations of buildings that architecture and design students had to build as part of their coursework. I remember having to do that for a final project when I took an architecture class. We had to make elevation drawings for our building and then build a 3-D representation of our design. That was fun
