Textures throughout Architecture

This gallery shows various textures in architecture made on multiple mediums such as oil on popular wood, watercolor, and drawing.

This drawing uses multiple tools such as pen, brown ink, and traces of black chalk. The fine lines on the roof tops give the drawing a bumpy feel while the shape of the plants give off a soft, puffy feel. There are also brown "smudges" across the painting which make me feel as through it could almost be an older photograph.
This sculpture uses plastics and films to create illusions. There are many textures in this piece. The three dimensional shape helps pronounce these textures. The ocean and sky with the fluffy white clouds look like they gone on forever while the side of the sculpture with the building looks as though it should feel rough from the brick even though it is smooth.
The artist used red chalk to create a design for a motif. The walls have many smooth, curved edges. The main focus also has many curves, but would have the texture of feathers represented on it. All of these texture are believable even though it is all flat.
This oil on canvas has many details as well as types of textures even though it only represents it. All of the archways are shown as three dimensional and provide the textures of the moulding on them. Even the magnificent painting reaching the ceiling appears to have a very detailed frame.
The Temple of Dendur is made from Aeolian Sandstone. There are textures provided by the details put into it as well as the material itself. This temple has so many textures to it because each individual block that composes it has engravings on it.
The chapel featured here has many lines on the walls and superior detail in the stained glass windows. The lines on the wall add volume and layers to the intricacy of it. The amount of detail and texture provided in the stain glass is continuous throughout.
This oil on poplar wood shows both expansion of a scene and texture regardless that it is created on a flat surface. The columns have numerous lines that them that create definition as well as a bumpy texture. The ceiling uses three dimensional shapes to give off texture too.
The Tower of Babel has texture not only on the tower itself, but throughout the rest of the painting. The lines give depth and texture to the tower by showing dark entrances and showing multiple walls and levels protruding. In the land surround the tower, one can find texture as well, such as in the trees and greenery in the back.
The oil on canvas shows texture on the building and the space around it. The building features stone block textures as well as decorative figurines in multiple places. The water nearby has lines the water which shows texture and movement.
This plastic and fiberglass igloo is more than just architecture, it is a vital tool. The lines on this structure create multiple levels of a dimensional shape. The structure is three dimensional and each hexagon/pentagon has lines which make it raised. Besides looking cool it's purpose is to cover hot springs and provide a natural energy source.
