This flexible greenhouse can be adjusted to various lengths and collects rainwater or dew for drip irrigation. When farmers need to grow vegetables in a greenhouse environment, the structure can stretch to the desired length. What’s more, it can collect and reuse rainwater through the grooved origami structure. The folding greenhouse is easy to set up anywhere where it's needed.

This is a good example of using the traditional folding technique of origami to solve an irrigation problem in a simple and material-friendly way.
Jury Statement
It's so exciting for us to win the iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD 2016. As a team, we worked together and helped each other to complete the project. We are particularly grateful to our teacher for his kind help and encouragement.
