Elongated square cupola
|Elongated square cupola|
J18 - J19 - J20
In geometry, the elongated square cupola is one of the Johnson solids (J19). As the name suggests, it can be constructed by elongating a square cupola (J4) by attaching an octagonal prism to its base. The solid can be seen as a rhombicuboctahedron with its "lid" (another square cupola) removed.
A Johnson solid is one of 92 strictly convex polyhedra that have regular faces but are not uniform (that is, they are not Platonic solids, Archimedean solids, prisms, or antiprisms). They were named by Norman Johnson, who first listed these polyhedra in 1966.
The dual of the elongated square cupola has 20 faces: 8 isosceles triangles, 4 kites, 8 quadrilaterals.

Related polyhedra and honeycombs
The elongated square cupola forms space-filling honeycombs with tetrahedra and cubes; with cubes and cuboctahedra; and with tetrahedra, elongated square pyramids, and elongated square bipyramids. (The latter two units can be decomposed into cubes and square pyramids.)
