A Pythagopod

In my recent review of the Nexus Network Journal, one idea was casually mentioned--the Pythagopod.

Christopher Glass's article explains how he integrates the five Platonic solids into a single shape. It is like "sphering the cube."

Also, Glass develops architectural models of a Pythagopod via a glass house and a hermitage pod. Share these interesting ideas with your students...some good and strange ideas!
