|David Mitchell's Origami Heaven - About MODE|
|MODE is an acronym for the Modular Origami Design Encyclopaedia|
|The Modular Origami Design Encyclopaedia is a visual catalogue of modular
origami designs. The catalogue is built around the design
work of the site author but is being extended, as time
allows, to include details of designs by many other
Development of the Modular Catalogue is on-going and you should not be surprised to find that some sections are much better developed than others.
The information about individual designs generally includes a credit giving the name of the paperfolder who is thought to have first discovered the design. Credits are also given to other paperfolders who are known to have independently originated the same design before it became widely known. The question of 'who got there first' is often difficult to resolve. All credits are correct to the best of the site author's current knowledge and belief, but further information is always welcome.
The references found throughout the catalogue are references to the site author's private files. For those who are interested an X in front of the reference indicates that the site author discovered the design for himself but subsequently discovered that another modular paperfolder had got there first. Any experienced modular designer will tell you that this is just something you have to get used to.
