Abstract

This paper shows, through a new geometrical approach, how to build some special deltahedra, which might represent nano-architectures of molecular structures, in nature commonly known as fullerenes, as well as new intriguing macro-architectures for designing innovative structures. We have realized models of these nano and macro architectures including a roof-like structure for a tennis court and educational games.
