Frank Lloyd Wright’s Most Famous Buildings Get 3D Paper Model Treatment In New Book

Frank Lloyd Wright, America’s most famous architect, would have turned 150 this year, and some of us just can’t get enough. With celebrations of Frank Lloyd Wright’s birthday in full swing in architectural institutions throughout the country, a new book is giving Wright fanatics the chance to recreate some of the architect’s most notable works through a series of cut-and-fold paper models.

The models come from a forthcoming book by “paper engineer” and artist Marc Hagan-Guirey, who guides readers through the step-by-step process of cutting and folding each model. Hagan-Guirey uses the techniques of Japanese kirigami—aka origami with scissors—to create remarkably detailed 3D miniatures.
