Icosahedra are sequentially attached at their vertices. Each icosahedron is smaller than the last in proportion to the golden ratio. Such a tower is placed at each of the 12 vertices of an icosahedron. The assembly fits inside a medial triambic icosahedron, which is one of the stellations of the icosahedron.
