The article discusses the use of Weaire-Phelan structure to build a bubble sculpture at the Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. The Weaire-Phelan structure has posed an abstruse scientific problem for mathematicians and physicists. However, the unique mechanical properties and the artistic appeal of the structure have inspired many building designs. The campus was adorned with the sculpture to recognize the achievements of mathematicians Dennis Weaire and Robert Phelan.
