The polyhedron is a representative model of organically grown forms of organisation in nature. The stainless steel sculpture, made of Alucobond and steel with a diameter of 3.5 m, was erected in a public square in Tokyo. Its structural complexity represents at the same time an abstract impression of the evolutionary process as well as an insight into the significant demands on the construction.
