1D-2D-3D

This principle yields aperiodic structures in any dimension. To get the insight into the spatial structures, they are designed as fractals.

Mind the Gap

Substitution tilings based on geometrically similar rectangles of different sizes. In all these themes the substitution follows the same rules, despite specific parameters are changed.
