Inside and Outside the Rhombic Hexecontahedron

(Proceedings pages 387–394)


The rhombic hexecontahedron is a twenty-pointed star polyhedron that is bounded by sixty golden rhombi. It can be understood as a stellation of its relative, the Keplerian rhombic triacontahedron, or as the assembly as twenty prolate golden rhombohedra. This study investigates these relationships and the possible structures that can be created by dissecting and recombining parts of these forms. Many possible structures are introduced with the help of Wolfram Mathematica graphics, the Zometool construction set, and the author's own StyroBlock modeling system, see
