Peter Dahmen is a German artist. He is in fact a Paper Architect. His love for pop-up came about from his need to catch public transport with a major work while he was studying graphic design. I am still amazes me how our lives can change direction because of the most random things.

Peter manages to capture movement and shape in his dynamic paper works and he has managed to turn his love of pop-up into a full time career.

Here is a short documentry on Peter and how he got into paper architecture. His work and attention to detail is amazing.
