Matt Shlian started school as a ceramicist, but it was only when he realized that he was “interested in everything” that his work really took off.

He creates sculptural artworks from flat pieces of paper that show the incredible diversity of the medium while creating beautifully inspiring forms. They are also doing something rather surprising: inspiring scientists.

Along with a team at the University of Michigan he won the NSF (National Science Foundation) award on a nano-origami project that combines both art and engineering.

In the process he’s using his art to help others understand the flexible nature of nano-structures. It’s not the first thing you think of when it comes to cutting and folding paper.

Shlian’s process is an interesting one, and one that other creatives should take note of: he often works within a series of limitations.

“For example on one piece I’ll only use curved folds, or make my lines this length or that angle etc,” he tells Strictly Paper. “Other times I begin with an idea for movement and try to achieve that shape or form somehow. Along the way something usually goes wrong and a mistake becomes more interesting than the original idea and I work with that instead.”

chenequa-residence-by-robert-harvey-oshatz-architect-14

From the architect. On a heavily wooded site adjacent to a lake in Milwaukee’s western fringe, Robert Oshatz was asked to design a home for a growing family. The site originally contained a house that was unsuitable for the family’s needs and was demolished. The owners recognized the site’s natural beauty, however, and stressed the importance of retaining all of the trees that existed on the site. The clients wanted a building, constructed from natural materials, which acted as one with its environment and provided unobstructed views and connections to the surrounding landscape.

Let’s take a look back on the gorgeous work of Mickey Muennig in the 70s.

Big-Sur-Glass-Roof-Yurt-Built-in-1976-4

Muennig says on his website that “Architecture is more than a shelter; it bonds a continuous and worldwide mystery to its inhabitants,” which certainly holds true for the Greenhouse in Big Sur (California).

Using stone, timber and other natural materials, the master of organic design created a fantasy home that creates an instant communication between the occupant and the breathtaking landscape. A loft bed is suspended at the top of the small space, which is warmed with a glass roof, while a vent promotes natural ventilation.
