    Origami Coop by Chris Mullaney



    First time I read about this project, it reminds me of my final year thesis that I did in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 2008, which was about vertical coop for free range chickens. It was compelling exploring the need of architecture involvement in relations with chickens, at that time.
