In terms of specialized vocabulary, origami is a pattern with a fixed structure created by smooth folded surfaces. Today, the origami art pattern, or folded paper, has become a source of inspiration for architects, designers, and researchers. The definition of beauty in specialized lexicography includes the evolution of rational features, sounds, and concepts, and in a broader sense examines the methods of feeling the environment and the individual’s position
within space. The most important factors in the study of aesthetics are the observer and its position (receiver), architecture or work of art (sender) and the environment or context of the design (interface). How this connection between original Japanese origami art as an emerging phenomenon in modern architecture and design and aesthetic concepts to improve the perception of this structure is a matter of research. The aim of this study is to identify the degree of adaptability of aesthetic criteria from the perspective of Western theorists as an important factor in understanding the pattern of origami architecture. The research method of this paper is a logical argument in order to match the aesthetic criteria with the example of origami buildings, the results of which have been studied and analyzed with a qualitative approach. The results of the research show that aesthetic characteristics are applicable to the sample of origami buildings, but the compliance and generalizability of the criteria are not the same. The most obvious compliance is related to the category of spatial quality criteria. Then, in the order of complexity and diversity, proportion and correct relationship between components and generalities and modulus and modulus, respectively, are in the next position. The lowest adaptability is related to the standard category of human scale.
