Islamic Star Patterns. Islamic star patterns arose in the centuries after the birth of Islam, and spread quickly as Islamic rule grew outward from the Middle East to encompass western Europe, northern Africa, and southern Asia.

Islamic Star Patterns

This form of ornamentation peaked in the first half of the second millennium. The practice then tapered off as the borders of the Muslim world began to shrink. Today, historical artifacts can be found in countries from Spain to Uzbekistan, with important concentrations in Spain, Turkey, Iran, and Morocco. There is no precise definition of an Islamic star pattern, but there are some general trends. Imperfect Congruence. It is a curious fact that no edge-to-edge regular polygon tiling of the plane can include a pentagon.

Introduction Islamic ceiling tiling, Kuwait City. Retrieved under a Creative Commons license from this Flickr page. For thousands of years architects and artists have covered floors, walls and ceilings with tilings created by gluing together many copies of a small set of regular shapes. Waterbomb Tessellation and Beyond. It all started with the platonic passion on origami tessellations, not much of the origami, but the tessellation part, as I didn’t want to fold it physically, nor model them using a physical engine such as Kangaroo.

Waterbomb Tessellation and Beyond

That would also be very unnecessary (and yes, very boring) to simulate a folding effort on computer unless we lose our connection with the real world. Instead, I tried to look at a much abstract, silly and basic part of it; the creasing patterns. I found below tessellation named “waterbomb” by the beautiful source of Eric Gjerde (here) to start an exploration. Grasshopper : Star Patterns. The technique explained here is used to generate “star patterns from polygons in contact”.

Unfortunately, the original name of this ancient technique is lost, but it is referred to here and in other sources as “Hankin’s Method”.

Louis led by Marcelo Spina of P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, Daniel Carper and Ken Tracy. The project's scope was a full-scale installation that transformed the centralized classical staircase of Givens Hall. The installation seeks to enhance and transform the spatial atmosphere of the vertical stairwell foregrounding conditions of figuration, lighting, materiality, texture, coloration, and corporeality. At first revealed through a large exterior opening, the installation accompanies the user's visual background upon entering into the building, spiraling vertically through the 2nd and 3rd floor studios, and crescendos as the ornamented foreground of the vaulted ceiling.

We help implement Islamic patterns in architectural projects. Grasshopper : Parametric Space. Space Symmetry Structure. In the best known example of Cellular Automata – Conway’s Game of Life, each cell has a binary state – it is either On or Off.

However, it is possible to explore similar automata where the state of each cell can be any real number in a given range – Continuous Cellular Automata. The video above shows such a CCA in grasshopper. Each cell has a height value, which interacts with the values of its neighbours according to a simple* equation. Grasshopper » the ant.

Drawings Diagrams & Analyses. Islamic Star Patterns. Waterbomb Tessellation and Beyond. Origami Tessellations. I’ve had this pattern in my head for a long time now, and only recently was I able to realize it in a way that was satisfactory to me. It uses a combination of the hinged-pleat flagstone style and the traditional straight-pleat style that origami folders are used to. It’s based on a traditional Islamic tiling which I have always been fond of, and it’s my pleasure to share the crease pattern with you.
