Published by patrick honner on

This door detail from the Quinta de Regaleira in Sintra, Portugal caught my eye.

Maybe because it put me in mind of the Mandelbrot set.

It does have a resemblance. Perhaps math is the origin of architecture design these days? Let me rethink that vague statement.

Well, I have a feeling that the scrolling on that door precedes knowledge of the Mandelbrot set by several hundred years, so these days are more likely those days.
