Types of Origami

Origami has expanded and evolved beyond birds and boats. There are now many types of origami. In a recent, informal survey, origami enthusiasts have come up with over "80" different types of origami. You can see the list here. In the future, we hope to organize the list so that we can have a better understanding of how the art form is evolving.

There are different ways to categorize paper folding. John Smith's Evolution of Origami sorts origami chronologically: Classical, Neo Classical, Modern, and Hyper-Modern. David Mitchell's site shows a family tree of origami design styles.

Below is a list of origami types featured in this web site. Each style of origami will produce a different genre of origami models. Click on to a branch of origami to learn more.
