The abstract design possibilities of architectural elements in the landscape has been explored in previous posts, but here are some more examples.
Contrasting rectilinear and organic, natural and man-made elements, increases visual interest. Though there are no trees in the roofscape, the earthen tiles, with their variegated textures, are a kind of natural element.
Black is rare in nature, but architectural elements give a landscape painter a chance to add some punchy accents to their composition.
Klimt integrates architectural and vegetal elements through pattern and texture.
