George Oh’s favorite structure is:

i-YbCd5.7

Why?

There is such high symmetry – concentric shapes within shapes, starting with platonic solids and going into bigger polyhedra to fit the number of atoms. The shapes are also interwoven with each other, and the viewer can find a multitude of shapes of all sorts of symmetry. It’s like playing with shape tiles in elementary school, but in 3d! —George Oh
