Moirés in architecture


Moirés in architecture can add a sense of motion to the building. As you walk past the building, the pattern will appear to move and dance – I can almost see it.

Such patterns could be dramatically improved by using color, generating meaningful images instead of simple geometric patterns, and making the patterns vary with the position of the sun.

Hi. I'm interested in the problem of rendering Moire patterns like these. Feel free to drop me a line if you'd like.
