Patterns 2: Design, Art and Architecture

The architect adopts the [herringbone] pattern for so many elements, such as fences, terraces and interior rooms, and in this way gives the buildings their overall comprehensive appearance.

Since the first volume was published, the subject of patterns has continued to evolve: colourful patterned wallpapers have returned to private homes; patterns have become a determining factor in graphic design and architecture; and designers are asked to design an ever-increasing variety of new ornaments and pattern repeats. Patterns 2 provides the necessary inspiration. It describes current trends, presents contemporary experiments, and situates the development within the cultural-historical context.
