## Statement

It is well known that the truncated icosahedron is a geometric model of sphere and also it originated from the ancient greek's great philosopher Plato's cosmic imagination based on mathematics. The soccer ball "Telstar" and nano technology molecule model "Fullerene" are realities of it. For a given RPS, it is possible for us to image a creative pattern derived from sphere by applying the usual sphere formation scheme to the given RPS. Eventually, through a series of tube design experiments, we can establish a tube designed reality of this creative pattern image. We call this reality the Archimedean star with respect to the given RPS.

## Artworks

The figure of 「Archimedean Dome CSH」 is a view from a central position over the dome.
We define an Archimedean dome by a dome type modification derived from a chain of certain Archimedean stars which fulls a lots of it's interior. Since the composition above is a chain consisting of all kinds of Archimedean stars, it must be an Archimedean dome.

In 2011, It was the original sparkling inspiration to design the spherical regular triangle at that times.

It's beautiful !
