The Square Orthobicupola
The square orthobicupola is the 28th Johnson solid (J28). It has 16 vertices, 32 edges, and 18 faces (8 equilateral triangles and 10 squares).
The square orthobicupola can be constructed by joining two square cupolae to each other at their octagonal face, such that the triangular faces touch each other at the edges. The ortho in the name refers to how the orientation of the two cupolae line up with each other. Joining the two cupolae in gyro orientation produces the square gyrobicupola instead.
Here are some views of the square orthobicupola from various angles:
