Making Geometry free pdf Following on from his successful Drawing Geometry, Jon Allen explores the creation of the many-sided three-dimensional forms known as the Platonic and Archimedean solids. Based on patterns of equally spaced points on a sphere, these polyhedra have been the fundamentals of geometric exploration for millennia. Many professionals find they need to be able to build three-dimensional shapes accurately, and understand the principles behind them. This unique book shows them how to make models of all the Platonic and Archimedean solids, as well as several other polyhedra and stellated forms. It provides step-by-step instructions for constructing the three-dimensional forms, as well as showing how to draw out accurately the geometry of the paperfold nets. Beginners and experienced artists and designers alike will find this book a source of practical guidance, as well as delight and inspiration which will amply repay the careful attention needed to construct the models.

About Jon Allen

Jon Allen is a practising architect who worked closely with Keith Critchlow, a world authority on geometry, for twenty years. He has a particular interest in the application of geometry to architectural design. He lives in London, and teaches geometry workshops in the UK and US. His book Drawing Geometry was published by Floris Books in 2007.
