Space Symmetry Structure is a blog written by Daniel Piker. There's something here for everyone, I think. Art kids can get down with the pictures, math nerds can geek out about the topology of rigidly foldable corrugations, and physics heads can get down with his gnarly magnetic field videos. Seriously, it is a pretty cool blog.







Get acquainted with these tessellations. Ooh.









And hey, here is some really complicated folding.


" This has links to some surprisingly deep mathematics – in particular the subjects of discrete differential geometry and integrable structure – Which have important architectural applications (such as finding planar panelings of curved surfaces) and also tie in with my earlier interest in minimal surfaces and circle packings.
