This is a kaleidoscape that will sit in the garden at the Northern Nevada State Veterans Home in Sparks, Nevada. It will be about 12 feet high and will sit on a 10’ x 10’ footprint. In the reflections, it will create a rhombic dodecahedron.
View inside the pyramid looking up toward the apex
The lattice cutouts above the doorways will reflect into six square pyramids, and the cutouts on the other sides will reflect into eight triangular pyramids. The cutout at the apex will reflect into a rhombic dodecahedron.
The structure will have benches and wheelchair accessible doorways. It will be a relaxing place to meditate or to gather with a few people. Although it will be small, people inside the structure will have the feeling of being inside a symmetrical 12-sided ball about 26 1/2 feet in diameter.
