|Eric Broekhuis is an Origamic Architecture Artist. Origamic Architecture is a paper craft form created by architect Masahiro Chatani in the early 1980's and it involves creating three-dimensional reproductions of architectural landmarks, geometric patterns, everyday objects, or other images using a single sheet of cut and folded paper.
Eric started this creative process in 2004 with his family Christmas card. In the following years, he would cut and fold designs that he found on the internet. Once Eric gained more experience, he started working on his own designs, doing a variety of cards (Christmas, birthday, wedding, etc..). Recently Eric has been creating many of his own intricate designs of buildings and geometric shapes.
With encouragement from friends and family, Eric has now decided to take the next step and share his work with a wider audience. Eric hopes that people will enjoy the work as much as he enjoys creating it.
