'Woof Shadow' Features a Raised Brick Facade with a Unique Pattern

'Woof Shadow,' a new apartment building in Tehran, Iran, features a brick facade that is a marvel of intricacy and planning. The red brick facade forms a complex, 3D design that contains tessellating diamonds and stretched parallelograms.

Part of the beauty of Woof Shadow is its scaled variability. When viewed from afar, the macro design of the facade is impossible to ignore. However, when viewed from closer up, one can truly appreciate the minute details of the bricklaying. For example, each shape is split down the center, with the bricks on one half taking on a spaced out, alternating pattern while the other half is completely filled in. Further, a closer view gives passersby a better idea of the precision involved in creating a 3D facade with the traditional building material.
