I love architecture but I never wanted to be an architect, I’m not rigorous or precise enough. I’m more into appreciating the work architects accomplish. Modern architecture is an obvious starting point for geometrical forms.
Older examples prove equally interesting, it is all geometry after all. Just different times, different tastes.
I was trying to find a photo showing nature’s amazing geometry in all its glory but couldn’t find one good enough. Nature’s inspiration is quite visible in this chandelier.
And the inspiration of any pattern I’ve ever done are the azulejos, portuguese tiles, the best example of geometrical repetition. These are 16th Century tiles at the Quinta da Bacalhôa and they are the oldest ones I’ve seen in Portugal.
