C. Escher utilizes different polyhedra such as the dodecahedron. Architecture: The geodesic domes of Buckminster Fuller influenced later buildings that were built in geometric shapes based on polyhedra. Astronomy: In the 16th century Johannes Kepler used the Platonic polyhedra as the basis for his theory of how the planets orbited the sun. Biology: Some viruses have coats that are shaped like icosahedra. Also, radiolaria look like stellated polyhedra with lots of points. Chemistry: The molecular structures of some substances are modeled in the shape of polyhedra.
