Construct is an accumulation of polyhedra forms I made from modular origami over a three year period.
Also known as 'Bucky balls' (after the American architect Buckminster Fuller who was known for his use of geodesic domes) they are built out of a number of 'Pentagon-Hexagon Zig Zag (PHiZZ) units' each made from a square piece of coloured paper.
They have the same geometric form as a Fullerene (carbon based molecules, also named after Fuller) which are used to build structures in Nanotechnology.
