Origami5 continues in the excellent tradition of its four previous incarnations, documenting work presented at an extraordinary series of meetings that explored the connections between origami, mathematics, science, technology, education, and other academic fields.
The fifth such meeting, 5OSME (July 13–17, 2010, Singapore Management University) followed the precedent previous meetings to explore the interdisciplinary connections between origami and the real world. This book begins with a section on origami history, art, and design. It is followed by sections on origami in education and origami science, engineering, and technology, and culminates with a section on origami mathematics―the pairing that inspired the original meeting.
Within this one volume, you will find a broad selection of historical information, artists’ descriptions of their processes, various perspectives and approaches to the use of origami in education, mathematical tools for origami design, applications of folding in engineering and technology, as well as original and cutting-edge research on the mathematical underpinnings of origami.
I will readily admit I became engaged with, even engrossed in, this seminal volume on the multifaceted aspects of the art, history, science, and engineering of origami in almost four dozen short papers astutely organized, really threaded through, four main sections. … There is plenty of mathematics learning and teaching engagingly embedded within the covers. … There’s something for virtually everyone, students and teachers alike, those mathematically or artistically inclined or interested, and those not so much. … novices and the origami-ignorant like me can find starting points to commence their own personalized explorations of this fascinating field. So, pick up this volume and begin unfolding it to reveal all its intricacies. May you find your own treasure ship or sacred crane among its pages!
―John E. Hammett III, Professor of Mathematics, Saint Peter’s University, and President, New Jersey Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators
When I first visited Japan in 1983 I was curious to learn how origami was taught and developed in Japan. … My search for a connection of origami with mathematics was not successful at that time. I wished that I could have seen a book or even some articles as they are published now in this book … Until recently, the scientific view of origami was rather underdeveloped and [these] proceedings might change this.

Praise for the Previous Volume:
Wow! Fantastic book! It will create new folds in your brain whether you are an artist, scientist, inventor, educator, or simply like to be amazed. The balance between mathematical theory and manipulative practice, and between artistic and educational applications makes this a book for everyone. I look forward to using this book personally and professionally.

I very like the mix of kinds of SAPIENTIAE...
I want to go to the next OSME in Tokio - JP!
Origami 5: Fifth International Meeting of Origami Science, Mathematics, and Education.
There are fascinating mathematical and complex articles like those on curved folding, woven origami tessellations, and the difficulties of crease pattern circle-packing.
Then there are the articles that are more accessible to the average origamist: how to teach origami to school children and success story or two in a tougher school system, studying types of paperfolding called Snapology and Twirl Designs, which are both accessible to anyone with rudimentary origami experience and an open mind.
A referenced history of origami is also good for someone who wants a "fuller" image of what is currently going on in the international origami community, which is larger than the average person seems to know.
This book is the perfect resource for anyone with some origami experience, enjoys higher-level mathematics, or simply is curious to really get to know what the speakers in the documentary "Between the Folds" were talking about.
