Ingrid Siliakus´ multilayered sculptures

I knew Ingrid Siliakus´ multilayered sculptures, but I´ve lost track of them until I´ve come across this post at
Here it says: 
¨In architectural criticism (mainly from the early '90s), the term “paper architecture” is typically used to disparage architects whose schemes are so unrealistic they’re unbuildable. The phrase is also applied to the emergence of “paperless,” computer-driven design studios. A third, less polemical definition comes from Japan, where a Tokyo Institute of Technology architecture professor named Masahiro Chatani developed a technique for cutting and folding single pieces of paper into elaborate 3-D models, drawing on traditional Japanese card making and pop-up books.
Chatani died in 2008, but a number of artists have continued his Origamicwork, among them, Dutch artist Ingrid Siliakus. Siliakus studied Chatani’s work in pattern books for years before attempting her first cut, but since then, her work has appeared in dozens of exhibitions and on the covers of the New York Times Style Magazine and Wallpaper
