Origami is the art of folding essentially two dimensional materials like paper into three dimensional objects. It has recently gained popularity amongst scientists and engineers as the technique can be used to create shape-changing structures. In the talk, I shall briefly outline the method for modelling origami and then focus on the creation of novel origami mechanisms. A number of examples will be given including a foldable shopping bag, a deployable grid structure and origami of thick panels. These origami structures have wide engineering applications ranging from deployable aerospace structures to civilian shelters and military installations.
