Japanese artist Wataru Itou created this amazing installation of integrated structures using basic tools like knives, hole punches and modeling glue. Titled "Umi no Ue no Oshiro" (Castle on the Ocean), the piece uses paths, doorways and staircases to interconnect just as it would in the real world. It took Wataru Itou four years to create this amazing work of origami. 

Umi no Ue no Oshiro was exhibited at Umihotaru: a service area on the ocean between Tokyo and Chiba Prefecture.
