The setting out is easily established, being based on four point geometry, the diagonal lines are all base on joining intersections with themselves and with the horizontal and vertical centering lines.

It’s a clever construction but one that would have been easy to set out.

Again the basis of the design is four-point geometry set out from the centering horizontal and vertical lines and then just repeated as far as is required.Why this should be so is difficult to say, but it is only when you take the trouble to make investigations such as this that you are able to learn something of the workings of the minds of the original designers.These two sketechs have been added as although they do not belong to the original drawings, I wanted to see how easily the sketch illustration, three above, could be worked up into – in the first instance – a relatively complex interweaving pattern.In the central junction the red lines have created a star effect.Note that it is not as symmetrical as I would have liked.

These two sketechs have been added as although they do not belong to the original drawings, I wanted to see how easily the sketch illustration, three above, could be worked up into – in the first instance – a relatively complex interweaving pattern.

In the central junction the red lines have created a star effect.

Note that it is not as symmetrical as I would have liked.

The underlying pattern does not have to be drawn in as much detail as I have shown, but there was something contemplative about this type of drawing that encouraged me to produce similar over-complex constructions, and that can be seen in many of the sketches on these pages.
