The pattern this origami tessellation represents is known as Pythagorean Tiling or Two Squares Tessellation ( I came up with this design independently, but it has been known since at least 2003. As far as I can tell, the first to fold it was Alex Bateman (his fold is at Recently, Madonna Yoder / gatheringfolds has published pictures of a number of related designs as well.


In this particular fold, the ratio of the sizes of the two squares is equal to 2:1 which results in an elegant pattern and also arises naturally due to the way I arrived at the pattern by using an 8x8 grid to fold a single molecule. However, all sorts of ratios can be folded, with a very large difference in size on one end of the spectrum, and a ratio of 1:1 which means just a flagstone of equal-sized squares on the other (example at


The structure of this model is that in each corner of a small square there is a modified twist which connects to a corner of the big square. The result is a flagstone pattern on the front side (the side with the two-square tessellation). In the case of 1:1 ratio, the tessellation is an iso-area flagstone. There is some similarity in this model's structure to Momotani's Wall.


Each molecule uses an 8×8 grid and in the folded model corresponds to one small square plus a one gride unit wide area around it. The molecule can be considered a kind of twist. In this model, all molecules have the same chirality (direction of rotation). It is also possible to connect the same molecules in a different way, with neighbors having opposite rotations. This results in a flagstone pattern of squares and rectangles (pics coming up).


This model is the starting point for my Woven Triangles tessellation series (see

The Spanish love their glazed colourful tiles and use them on floors, on walls, inside and outside, made with great Artistry and creativity, they liven up the place and are part of the architecture.

These were 4 flights of stairs, a real eye-teaser.

Standing in front of it, it looked like a tall wall, I asked a model to go and sit on the first landing, free and comfortable, not posed.

I have it with all the steps, but the place was surrounded by palm trees, it was impossible to get a picture without shadow, this was over the midday= the least favourable moment to take a photograph, so I decided to go for a closer comp.

Take care, be safe!

At first I tried building the image with the complete long stairway. After cutting and adding I figured out that a basic rectangular/square tile was all I needed for replication. While it's not all that apparent two different samples were used, one horizontal and one vertical. I also discovered that if I did a little more shading to each tile I could quickly make this appear as a true weave pattern. Maybe next time, we'll see.

Vertical tiles, horizontal tiles, diagonal tiles...tiles everywhere! And a chimney as a bonus.
