Paper Architecture in ARCHICAD

ASM Techbase new quick coffee tip is ready. For this week’s tip I got inspired as I came across some great paper Architecture. According to an online search the phrase 'paper architecture' actually originated mainly from Russia. I wanted to see whether it was easy or hard to replicate paper architecture in ARCHICAD. Discover how it went and try it too.

That's really cool. Thanks for posting this. Could you recommend a good paper texture for high quality renderings ?

ArchiCAD 25 4013 USA - Windows 10 Pro 64x - Dell 7720 64 GB 2400MHz ECC - Xeon E3 1535M v6 4.20GHz - (2) 1TB M.2 PCIe Class 50 SSD's - 17.3" UHD IPS (3840x2160) - Nvidia Quadro P5000 16GB GDDR5 - Maxwell Studio/Render Multilight 2

My apologies I totally missed your message !

I think it's best to create your own texture for this. There are enough photos online of different papers. Pick the one you want and work with this, like make it seamless, create a bump map in psd etc.
