I received a lot of emails asking about lace interpretations in architecture, especially after my last post. Like in fashion, architecture uses the "lace effect" as an overlay treatment to the facade and skin of the building. Because of advancements in technology and computer design, this type of application is even possible and readily used throughout the world. The lace-like facades allows light to licker through and unusual views inside-and-out.
