Multimodular Origami Polyhedra: Archimedeans, Buckyballs and Duality (Dover Origami Papercraft)

By Rona Gurkewitz

Carrying on with the groundbreaking paintings in their past books, the mathematician and mechanical engineer authors of this quantity extra improve the hyperlink among origami and arithmetic — and extend the connection to crystallography. via a sequence of images, diagrams, and charts, they illustrate the correlation among the origami waterbomb base and the mathematical duality precept of Archimedean solids. Then, they convey the right way to practice the correlation to versions of the buckyball (a carbon-60 molecule corresponding to a football ball, named for R. Buckminster Fuller, fashion designer of the geodesic dome). via the method of gyroscope transformation, origamists can remodel buckyballs into extra new and fascinating shapes. step by step directions and transparent diagrams convey origami fans tips on how to create a global of multifaceted wonders.
