Balance in Design

Balance in Design

symmetry 

Sometimes I find myself drawn to buildings that are symmetrical in design. There is something reassuring about the organized layout of the details as well as the repetition. When looking at buildings like this, I find that my eyes will zero in on the details and then zoom out to see the whole. It's a very relaxing exercise. Perhaps the relaxation is part of the reason I such an affinity for this type of architecture.

I love simple picture of architectural elements - even brick work patterns.  I can't imagine the skill of the tradesmen who built these buildings.

I think that there are still some exceedingly skilled craftsmen in existence. Unfortunately, few people want to pay for the time it takes to create intricately beautiful buildings. Sleek steel and metal speak power.

I'm also a softee for symmetry in buildings. Interestingly, I don't like symmetry in my garden or inside my house. Go figure.

Ray, I guess the inside space we live within would feel a little strange if it were symmetrical.

Thanks Ann.
