Origami Fountains – Japantown, San Francisco

Central features of San Francisco’s Japantown are the Origami Fountains of world-renowned sculptor, Ruth Asawa. To complement them, NDD created colorful, origami-inspired graphics for the nearby lanterns. Each panel design includes an origami element with its name in Japanese and English, adding a fun and educational touch for pedestrians.

Collaborators: Jim Yonashiro, Grace Horikiri, J. Honda Construction and Vital Signs
