I found the structure in May 1998 during my researches on quasi-periodic pattern. It consists of 180 rods based on Dodecahedral symmetry. It stands itself. There is no glue nor strings. There is a spherical dome inside. If we make big one, we can enter inside. This work got the Silver Prize at the International Design Competition Osaka, 1999.
