Today is all about simple geometrical forms that I have found as decorative elements on various buildings around town. They can be just as beautiful as the more fanciful motifs, but then, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Hope you like ’em!
At the top, simple stripes within a semi circle emulate the rays of the sun, and above, pastille shaped openings, in a repetitive pattern, decorate the façade of a residential building on Plaça del Bonsuccès, and protect its windows from unlawful entry.
A pretty star surrounds a collage of squares on Carrer Notariat’s notarial building, and (below) a multitude of bricks were used to create zig zags, crosses and diamonds on the former bull ring Las Arenas at Plaça Espanya.
Slightly more fancy shapes, but again in a repetitive pattern create friezes and single elements to decorate white walls, above and below.
Dots and triangles are enough to create floral motifs of a naïf nature, and a touch of paint brings them to life, on Carrer Doctor Dou.
Are there geometrical decorative elements where you live? Would you like to show me? I’d like to see! Just drop me a line via email (details on the “contact” page)… Have a great Thursday!
