graphic patterns can be derived from most parts of our external environment, whether on a human, natural, spatial or architectural scale. characterized by a repetitive structure, where the relationships between individual objects are perceived as a whole, this sequence of motifs is regularly adopted by architects to define environments, communicate an aesthetic balance and generate order upon an urban-sized.

architect turned graphic designer giuseppe gallo found, in the current landscape, dutch office mecanoo to be of the practices that best implements their stylistic preference towards patterns throughout their architectural portfolio. using nine of some the firm’s most recognizable projects from across the globe, gallo formed a series of posters that geometrically abstract building façades and forms into flat, minimalist motifs. from the instantly-recognizable interlocking circles of the birmingham library building to the abstract grid of architectural materials used for the netherlands open air museum, gallo draws the most basic elements from mecanoo’s built works and makes novel illustrative interpretations on paper. see a side by side comparison between the poster and project, and download the series for free, here.
