Description:

The Rhombohedron Society is about exploring the world of cubic symmetry. The lesson being taught by the Society is about the unifying properties of the rhombic dodecahedrton. This includes finding and learning about the how the lost triangle of Pythagoras defines the slopes of the faces of cubic polyhedra. Within the space are four areas. The primary workshop/classroom includes seating and work tables where visitors will learn about the Lost Triangle and make a Lost Triangle template to take with them. Visitors also will have the opportunity to learn more about geometry by assembling small scale models. There will be a dome with built in seats and a transparent skin being used for 24/7 multi-media presentations, and the Gypsy Wagon and car “SV 3 Rose” all made in plywood with integral slotted and notched connections, more whimsical creations as if from the mind of Leonardo.
