Aga Khan Motif – How to draw Islamic Geometry

A pattern from the @agakhanmuseum in Toronto Canada. I love how this pattern is seen repeatedly all around the museum, in glass, metal and wood. It’s actually quite subtle, but powerfully gives a sense of the Islamic heritage contained within this modern and minimalist building. I think I’m a fan.
