Here’s a polyhedral shape we haven’t mentioned much: the antiprism.
Unlike certain regular prisms (rectangular, triangular & hexagonal), anti-prisms will not “close pack.”
They do, however, make for a sturdy, economical packaging structure with interesting triangular side panels.
There’s also an antiprism shaped building being erected in lower Manhattan, as we speak.
