Abstract

Geometry, traditional arts and design universally contribute both to the formation of ideas that to the creation of form by establishing a cultural contract between art and science. The introduction of digital design media has been imposing new and practical ways to rediscover knowledge or culture in representation and design from traditional arts. The subject of geometric tiling of the Euclidean plane is always a contemporary challenge by combining creative roots of artistic and scientific research. From the ornamental motifs of the Alhambra in Granada and the Mezquita of Cordoba, geometry, shape and colour allow designers to experience a wide range of meanings, ranging from the practical and technical sphere, to the spiritual and sacred one.
