The Quarter Round Mosaic

The Quarter Round Mosaic is an interesting experiment and so aesthetically pleasing…The projects is a “geometric assembly exploring the influence of color in an arbitrarily generated field. Each mosaic is generated over time so that shapes placed earlier in the process have more influence on the composition. At a regular interval, a quarter round shape is placed in some empty grid space. The quarter round immediately polls all of its neighbors (existing or not) to determine the mean average color of the region. It then transforms itself to that color and rotates to some random orthogonal orientation.”Design and code by Jared Tarbell….See some images below and check out the site HERE!

Summerhouse Skane by LASC Studio

When the guys over at LASC Studio converted an old farmhouse in Oesterlen, Sweden, they not only added lots of light by adding larger windows facing the garden and courtyard, but they also opened up the rooms and added some amazing color accents. As Jonas and Johannes of LASC Studios put it:”One of the narratives are the colors that are never boldly present, but appear and disappear.” Well said guys…to check out more of their projects, go to their site, here!
