St Paul’s Square gets a Repave

Visitors to St.Pauls’ Cathedral are in danger of being led off the straight onto bent and narrow paths, courtesy of a quick design sketch by Michael Mitchell, currently at the Welsh School of Architecture, University of Cardiff. There’s scarcely enough tessellation visible to determine which Lattice Labyrinth has been laid out in the Square, but I think it may be that of St George, but perhaps we should rename Chinese Labyrinth (23,4) The Road to Damascus.

About davescarthin

After a brief academic and local government career, long an independent bookseller/publisher at Scarthin Books, Cromford, Derbyshire, UK. An antiquarian bookseller in two senses, now also has time to be an annuated independent post-doc, developing the long dormant topic of lattice labyrinth tessellations - both a mathematical recreation and a source of compelling practical tiling/paving and textile designs. Presenting a paper and experiencing so many others at Bridges Seoul 2014 Mathart conference was a great treat, as was the MathsJam Annual Conference in November 2016. I'm building up to a more academic journal paper and trying hard to find practical outlets in graphic design and landscape architecture. An 8 ft square tiling design was part of the Wirksworth Festival Art and Architecture Trail 2016. I love giving illustrated talks, tailored to the audience. Get in touch to commission or to collaborate.
