Modular origami combines individually folded “units” into complex shapes. Learn how to make a cube with six units, and find out how they can be modified for building other shapes.

Meenakshi Mukerji (Adhikari) was introduced to origami in early childhood by her uncle Bireshwar Mukhopadhyay. She rediscovered origami in its modular form as an adult in 1995, when a friend took her to a modular origami class taught by Doug Philips. This newfound mathematical and structural side of modular origami rekindled her passion for the art, and soon after, she began designing and displaying origami on her website. She is a renowned origami author and just released her seventh book.
