The professional ethics of judging quilts require that the maker remain anonymous as not to influence the judging by existing friendships or - hopefully rarely - animosities.

archiT50 - Looking back

Looking back #archiTEXTure #inspiration #quilt #patchwork #textileart

This is inspirational photo #50 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This is the last photo in the archiTEXTure edition of 50pictures. We take this opportunity to look back on 50 inspirations and to invite you once again to pick one or more photos and translate them into a small wallhanging.

Photo #50 also invites you to look back - the 21st century building in the centre of Munich faces and at the same time reflects the church of St. Michael, the largest Renaissance church north of the Alps...

archiT49 - Anything but 90°

Anything but 90° #archiTEXTure #patchwork #quilting #textileart #inspiration

This is inspirational photo #49 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This photo shows a detail of the new central building of the Leuphana University campus in Lüneburg, Germany. Star architect Daniel Libeskind, part-time professor at Leuphana, developed this innovative building together with his students as a modern, open-minded and friendly place to meet, communicate, reflect and exchange.

archiT48 - Mediterranean Village

Mediterranean Village #archiTEXTure #inspiration #quilt #patchwork #textileart

This is inspirational photo #48 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This multilayered view of typical mediterranean houses boxed together and joined by several small squares and flights of stairs offers lots of angles for an artistic interpretation. Observe the textures and colours of the brickwork, the shadows cast by the late afternoon sun, the contrast offered by the plants...

archiT47 - Azulejos

Azulejos #archiTEXTure #inspiration #quilt #patchwork #textileart

This is inspirational photo #47 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This photo shows a row of Azulejos, handpainted and glazed ceramic tiles. On the Iberian Peninsula, they are a legacy of the Moors, who dominated large parts of Spain and Portugal from the 8th century. These weatherproof tiles are used on public monuments and buildings, house façades and churches, but also on interior walls to create artistic murals.

archiT45 - Circular Relations

Circles #archiTEXTure #patchwork #quilting #textileart #inspiration

This is inspirational photo #45 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This photo shows the outer façade of the new library in Birmingham, opened in 2013, which consists of intertwined silver and black metal rings of different sizes. The resulting pattern is reminiscent of the flower of life or the traditional Japanese shippo pattern, which in Buddhism is a symbol of good interpersonal relationships.
