Pseudoglobes on a Cuboctahedron

The cuboctahedron is a quasiregular or Archimedean polyhedron, which can be imagined as a cube whose eight corners were removed (cut off by planes passing through the midpoint of each original edge), creating eight new triangular faces. Its relatively large faces make it fairly easy to build. However, please read the generic assembly tips. You might also learn something about cuboctahedral and polyhedral maps in general.
