Rhombic hexecontahedra (RH) are placed at the vertices of a dodecahedron so that each RH meets two others at vertices. Rhombic triacontahedra (RT) are placed at the vertices of an icosidodecahedron; the RTs are connected to each other on their faces, as well as to the faces of the RHs. When the radial distance of RTs is increased by the golden ratio, then the RTs meet other faces of the RHs, forming a dodecahedral frame.
