## Morphing the Ammann-Beenker tiling

We can vary the dualization method in many ways. Here we play with the Ammann-Beenker tiling and use different lengths for the lines generated by the first square grid and the second square grid. This produces squares of different sizes … Continue reading

## Morphing the tiling of octagons and squares

In the last post “Doubling the tessellation of octagons and squares” I have used a grid of squares (in black) with diagonals (in blue). The blue lines are distinct and cannot be mapped onto the black lines by the symmetries … Continue reading

## Doubling the tessellation of octagons and squares

Regular octagons and squares make up a well-known semiregular tessellation that is often used to decorate floors Its dual grid is essentially a square grid with diagonal lines added. Four lines cross at the corner points giving the octagons of … Continue reading

## The dualization method

In this post I am presenting a third method for producing quasiperiodic tilings. This is rather technical but also very important for the future work in this blog. Note that the projection method, the iteration method and the dualization method … Continue reading

## Iteration of rhombs: filling the gap (2)

The gaps in the fractal design of 12-fold rotational symmetry of my earlier post “Iteration of rhombs” can be filled in similarly as for the design of 8-fold rotational symmetry (see the post ” … filling the gap “.) Here … Continue reading
