Platonic & Archimedean Solids ~ Daud Sutton

"Platonic & Archimedean Solids" was my first book from the Wooden Books collection. I've been addicted to their fine books ever since. Wooden Books are small, beautifully produced introductions to the Liberal Arts, captivating scientists and artists alike. With exquisite illustrations, superfine printing, and the finest quality recycled papers, this series is in a league of its own. Book Description Whereas Sacred Geometry introduced readers to two-dimensional forms, Platonic & Archimedean Solids presents the world of three dimensions, which was understood as early as neolithic time. Daud Sutton elegantly explores the eighteen forms—from the cube to the octahedron and icosidodecahedron—that are the universal building blocks of three-dimensional space, and shows the fascinating relationships between them. For anyone interested in design, architecture, and mathematics, this will be a delight.

Use natural heating and cooling 4. Be beautiful as well as ecological. 5. Located close to there the dwellers have to go (work, school, shopping). 6. Refurbish older buildings where possible. The thirty or so houses described in this book fit these criteria as best as possible. Some of these are in remote locations so fail in that criteria (unless you work at home and do not have children in school). But a surprising number of these dwellings are in cities: New York, Vienna, Stuttgart, Melbourne, San Antonio, Phoenix. The houses are striking in appearance, inexpensive to build, totally functional. As with other books of home plans, these houses serve as idea books for architects and potential owners to use in their new designs. "
