Modular Adaptations
 
Modular adaptations are modular designs created by tweaking, or repurposing, traditional single-sheet or modular paperfolds.

I very much like this way of designing. It makes me feel connected to those, often unknown and unremembered, paperfolders who first pioneered the exploration of what folding paper can do.
