The Corpuscle ­ a Simple Building Block for Polyhedral Networks


The corpuscle, a geometric structure formed by ten regular, but slightly deformable triangles, allows for building a variety of three­dimensional structures, including the Goldberg icosahedron, infinite chains, closed rings consisting of 8, 12 or 16 subunits, and a cube­like structure comprising 20 subunits. These shapes can be built as paper models, which… (More)
