need help with surface polygons

I can't seem to figure out how to get the nifty polygons used on the
surface in the solving the quintic poster.

the best that i can seem to do is to rotate the rectangles 45 degrees
and reduce them by half, to get a partial see-thru object:

rot = Polygon[x_] :-> Polygon[1/2(x+RotateRight[x])]

but what i really want is the one used on the surfaces of the solving th
quintic poster.

sorry if this seems obvious, but I am new at this.
