Hi,  friends

I volunteer with ScienceMentors 1:1, a program in Trenton, New Jersey, that
gets high school kids doing science/environmental/engineering research
projects with adult mentors. One theme of this year's program is housing,
especially for homeless people in Trenton. (Some of the kids in the program
are or have been homeless.)

The work by Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban, with cardboard paper tubing is
an inspiration:

Can you suggest other information on houses, shelters, buildings,
construction methods... using paper as the primary material, whether or not
they use origami?

I feel sure I have seen some (maybe even posted some to this list), but
can't locate them in my own origami files.

I'd also be glad to have suggestions of 3-D origami models of houses,
apartment buildings....

Many thanks!
