A Quasicrystal for Denmark's Coastby Tony Robbin,
Abstract: The first true quasicrystal structure will have been built in the fall of 1993 at COAST (The Center for Art, Science, and Technology at the Danish Technical University). With 600 aluminum nodes and 1000 22 inch aluminum rods as well as colored, mirrored and half-mirrored acrylic plates, it will be exquisitely and magically responsive to both changes in light and the viewer's movement.
