In this workshop we will show how to make modified truncated icosahedra using 4D Frame tubes. It starts from pentagonal pieces in a form of multiple frame and assembles it in mathematical patterns. Knowledge of the geometric structure is fundamental to understanding how these beautiful spheres are designed and constructed. Participants will experience mathematical creativity together with building and designing. By building these spheres, participants will gain a better understanding of three-dimensional structure.
