I am writing a paper on the re-emergence of patterns and ornament in architectural design today,how its going from minimalism (simple, white, less is more, futurisitic) and the to today's works of marcel wanders, jaime hayon-having complex intricate patterns in mosaics, crochet, bright colours and more architecturally speaking, the recent entires of EMBT's Spanish Pavilion for Shanghai 2010 and brick-pattern as seen in Peter Rich Architect's Mapungwe Interpretation Centre. Any inputs, ideas, examples on this journey from simple to such jazzed out designs anyone??
