Out of Context / Matter Space Structure

Karl-Hector Robertsson

Pattern, Rythm & Repetition

As I walked through the streets of gothenburg, frustrated that I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to explore, I began to look on the facades of the buildings surrounding me. I suddenly felt that the facade of the building I looked at corresponded to the music in my headphones, the rhythm of the drums matched the repetitions in the facade’s dense window placement in a strange way. This realization got me thinking of rhythm in architecture, can one find rhythm, repetition or hidden pattern that identifies a particular type of building style?
