I was in Florida last week, and saw a giant attraction in the shape of a mysterious solid. I examined it a lot and found that it is related to the dodecahedron and icosahedron. Most of the concave vertices have six stelled triangles surrounding it. Although, I was able to locate multiple concave vertices with five stelled triangles. Can someone please identify this for me?

It's a Geodesic sphere, with raised 'faces' as if it were stellated.
