In 2012 we were invited to take part in the 21st Pladur competition, where we had to design a resting area for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago. Working in a team with two other friends, we were awarded first prize for our university, which took us to the next stage - representing our school against all other Spanish universities.

The brief called for an easily demountable space which used Pladur products, starting an investigation into origami and its practicality in architecture.

The question of how to "fold" architectural elements forced us into learning how to design advanced aluminium-extruded joinery, so that we could design a piece which could hold triangular Pladur plasterboard, be hinged, and break the thermal bridge - all in a very small space, since the thicker we made it, the thicker the module would be when folded.
