I will describe a few inverse problems in physical geometry, along with some (partial) solutions. These include  using kirigami to morph planar domains, using cylinders and spherical caps to create mechanical memories, using smooth growth patterns to create flowers and faces, and using origami to fold flat sheets into curved surfaces.
