Kintetic Joy: Basic Principals of Paper Engineering

Virtual Exhibit

Engineers study how forces act upon materials and structures to design machines that take into account how potential forces could be applied. Paper engineers design structures and mechanisms out of paper to solve real-world challenges. 

Paper engineers develop designs for pop-up books, packaging, art, furniture, and much more. Kinetic Joy: Basic Principles of Paper Engineering explores the concepts behind the designs that bring paper to life and enable movement.
