What are Platonic Solids?
For #MakeItSunday, we’re introducing the Platonic Solids. At present, they are studied as found in nature structures as crystals, in chemical binding and in man-made structures like Buckminster Fuller’s geodisic domes and 3D trusses. .
But why should we make or know about these? The Platonic Solids, are helpful in understanding nature’s structures as well as for designing man-made structures and products both functional and aesthetic. We will be making models of these, in workshops, both online and offline.
