 LOGO-L> Off-computer only???

If three identical golden rectangles intersect each
other symetrically (each perpendicular to the other),
the corners of the rectangles will define the 12
corners of an enclosing regular icosahedron as well
as the centers of the 12 pentagons that form an
enclosing regular dodecahedron.

A model of this was built using clear plastic
pentagons and string running from pins stuck
into the corners of the thin cardboard rectangles.

A 3-D computer graphics drawing of an object like
this would make a fascinating display, especially
if you could 'see through' the outer layers.

(from the book "Fascinating Fibonaccis")
