Synopsis: "Space is not a passive vacuum; it has properties that constrain the patterns that exist within it." Thus does the author set the stage for a broad presentation of and informal introduction to the properties of polyhedra, such as the molecule Buckminsterfullerine. The book has a simple fundamental quality of viewpoint and treatment that gives it an unusually widespread applicability for those who share a common interest in analyzing and designing spatial structures or networks. Architects, crystallographers, artists interested in aspects of design science - as well as mathematicians, physicists, chemists, and biologists, will find here a classic and beautiful presentation of an art form, developed from rigorous mathematics and basic parameters such as dimensionality, extent, and valency. Students in all these fields, many of whom come to Professor Loeb's Department of Visual and Environmental Studies for an introduction to design science, will find the book a marvelous text.
