The points of an icosahedron (one of the 5 platonic solids) can be created by intersecting 3 golden rectangles (based on the proportion phi - 1:1.618 - the golden ratio). an icosahedron has 20 triangular faces, 30 edges and 12 vertices with five triangular faces meeting at each vertex... #icosahedron #platonicsolids #geometry #goldenrectangles #goldenmean #phi #phiratio #universalgeometry #mathart #gometryart #vertex #platonic

Tensegrity icosahedron toy: an architectural engineering inspired toy for tots- believe it or not this design is sold as a toy for babies: the skwish rattle by the manhattan toy company. six wood struts float isolated from each other but held in a stable configuration by a net of 24 connecting elastic cords. this configuration of three sets of parallel struts forms a jessen’s icosahedron under tension, and was invented by the famous architect buckminster fuller in 1949. a physics toy for ages 0 and up! ➡️ follow the link in my profile for info on where to get this toy and other amazing items featured here on @physicsfun #physics #physicsfun #tensionforce #tensegrity #buckminsterfuller #kennethsnelson #icosahedron #compression #structuralengineering #floatingcompression #science #scienceisawesome
