Parque Origami Tessellation

 

parque pattern origami flagstone tessellation

A good flagstone tessellation is a glorious thing. Over the years I've folded many and enjoyed almost all of them. 

I started out folding flagstone tessellations using the crease patterns generously offered on the internet by their respective creators. It taught me so much. 

This idea may have, probably has, been done before, but it was new to me.

I was thinking of a similar creation I'd folded before by Joel Copper and came up with this pattern. 

It's a series of rhombuses and triangles arranged around small hexagonal twists on the reverse side. 


Rhombuses and triangles are common shapes in so many tessellations. In this case, the difference is how those shapes are arranged. 

Personally, I love a good flagstone tess. They just make so much sense to me. 

Once you get the hang of it they're not terribly difficult. 

And once you learn the structure of how they're created, it's not too hard to seek out your own patterns. 

I do have my crease sketch. Just need to take a pic and then I'll upload it with an update. 

But it's so much more fun to sus it out on your own.
