Welcome to the Platonic Solids as Demonstrated in Book Thirteen of
Euclid's Elements


This site demonstrates the construction of the five Platonic Solids from Book 13 of Euclid's Elements.

This project has brought forth much philosophizing on the nature of the internet, geometry, and the world, and how we orient ourselves in it.

In order to orient yourself, we recommend taking a look at how to best view the site, and to take a look at the resources available on Euclid on the WWW.
