Abstract
This contribution is based on the study of regular and semi regular polyhedral frames (Platonic and Archimedean polyhedra) with emphasis on formal and functional optimization through the use of tensile structures. We seek to explore the possibilities to stabilize less stable polyhedral modulations as well as the use of the spatiality of them to generate new applications.
