Abstract

The author has coined the term ‘Polyhedric Architecture’ for buildings in which polyhedral geometry is a basic aspect of their design. He gives his reasons for choosing such a design for the Ramot Housing Complex, consisting of apartment units, located on a hilly, rocky terrain near Jerusalem. The final application combines the use of both dodecahedra and a cubic array provided by an arrangement of dodecahedra. The array presents the advantage of structural strength and the dodecahedra are used for providing both exterior walls compatible with the surrounds and interior walls that are suited for human habitation.
