The shape of the BamX! pavilion models part of a truncated icosahedron, a highly symmetric Archimedean solid. The final design is composed of 36 deployable cylinders that are connected at 21 woven nodes to form an arrangement of pentagons and hexagons. The mix of different polygonal elements in the structure locally breaks symmetry and requires optimizing the nodes carefully to accommodate the different angles in which cylinders join at the node.
