I would like to thank Amy Ackerberg-Hastings and Janet Heine Barnett, Convergence editors, for their support, encouragement, and good advice. Without their help this article would not have been published.

I thank the anonymous referees for suggestions that improved the article.

I am grateful to John Jeremiah Edminster for granting permission to use their designs of a rhombic box and a bee cell box and to Cory Poole for allowing use of his photo of Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion World model. I am also grateful to Akal Editorial for granting permission for the use of images from Pacioli's book La Divina Proporción.

Miguel Cardil helped me with the artistic design of the pages.
