2 "golden" Rhombicosidodecahedra and 6 Quasicubes



If you replace the squares of the rhombicosidodecahedron by "golden" rectangles (rectangles with side lengths like 1 : 1,61803...), you get the two polyhedra in the top row. There are two variations, because the longer side can be orientated towards the pentagon and towards the triangle. Although the rectangles in both models are identical, the radii are different.
The model in the bottom row is a compound of 6 quasicubes. It was developped from the truncated cube. These models were made with the help of the program Great Stella . With this program you can open the STEL-files.
