Patterns are everywhere. They don’t just exist in math problems. If you train your eye, you can see them on the streets, on buildings, on food, as well as on people’s faces. Being aware of them – and even better, understanding them – can be key to putting a sense of order where there is chaos.

Mathematicians and theorists use them all the time. They use patterns to make educated guesses, develop new technology and solutions, as well as improve critical thinking and logic. And of course, patterns are beautiful. Nature itself is a huge inspiration for patterns: from flower petals, shells, vegetables, to branches, animal prints, and constellations. All you need to do is open your eyes.

Patterns can be new or old, organic or man-made. Weathering and erosion are good examples of natural processes that eventually create gorgeous outlines on rocks, sand, and earth. On the other hand, architecture is a great instance for man. Check out famous landmarks across the world and you will realize how many patterns they possess.

There’s the staircases of Panna Meena ka Kund in Jaipur, India; the Metropol Parasol of Seville, Spain; the windows of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan, Italy; and the escalator at the Nu Sentral mall in Kuala Lumpur. They’re all stunning and mind-boggling thanks to patterns.
