Bridges 2012 Workshop Paper
A Workshop on Making Modified Truncated Icosahedra Using 4D Frame
(Proceedings pages 643–646)
In this workshop we will show how to make modified truncated
icosahedra using 4D Frame tubes. It starts from pentagonal pieces
in a form of multiple frame and assembles it in mathematical patterns.
Knowledge of the geometric structure is fundamental to understanding
how these beautiful spheres are designed and constructed. Participants
will experience mathematical creativity together with building and
designing. By building these spheres, participants will gain a
better understanding of three-dimensional structure.
