Multimodular Origami Polyhedra: Archimedeans, Buckyballs and Duality
Experienced origamists can explore the link between paperfolding and mathematics with this well-illustrated guide to creating a world of multifaceted wonders that draws on elements of crystallography. Photographs, diagrams, and charts illustrate the relationship between the origami waterbomb base and a mathematical principle from ancient Greece. Instructions show how to apply this relationship to models of the buckyball, a sphere of interlocked hexagons and pentagons that resembles engineer Buckminster Fuller's famous geodesic dome. Detailed instructions and clear diagrams show how to use gyroscope transformation to form the buckyballs into even more interesting shapes. A challenge to origami devotees, these remarkable projects will also provide perfect aids to classroom demonstrations of geometric principles.
