Icosahedral

A Sculpture for Cambourne Business Park

In 2004 Cambourne Business Park  commissioned Taslim Martin’s sculpture Icosahedral  to enhance the Park’s spacious, high-quality landscape and create a new permanent landmark for Cambourne.

Icosahedral is an open steel structure forming a three-metre-diameter sphere. Lengths of curved stainless steel tubing meet at complex welded joints to create an icosahedral, a twenty-sided shape made up of equilateral triangles. The idea for the work derives from medieval armillary spheres – which attempted to model the movement of the stars in relation to the earth - and from the geometry of Platonic solids.

“This commission has proved an interesting challenge. I wanted to create something elegant with a physical presence. I also wanted it to sit lightly in the landscape; the sculpture should be in keeping with the generosity of scale and attention to detail of the architecture and landscaping of Cambourne Business Park.”  Taslim Martin
