Geometric minimalistic urban patterns

Here is a simple, minimalistic, geometric photograph of cityscape patterns. I like very much to search and photograph urban geometric patterns and pursue this interest regularly on walks and photo bike rides around where I live. The photograph below shows the skyscrapers on Hagenholzstrasse in Zurich Oerlikon. The buildings were once named sunrise towers, but they have traded ownership and now apparently bear the name of a swiss bank (to which I am even less inclined to link). The towers gained notoriety when the famous swiss flying man Ueli Gegenschatz died after a base jump from one of the buildings (I highly recommend watching his amazing TED talk). At the moment, two towers and additional buildings are rising up, which will all be part of a whole business center named Quadro.
I like the colors and regular pattern of this photograph and to me it seems as if it was a floor pattern. However, it is of course the facade of one of the skyscrapers and you are enjoying a straight look up. Depending on the weather and the time of the day the colors of the glass windows change color, but I like the combination of the blue windows and the grey stone in this photograph.

Have a nice week!
Florian.
