Description: The software package PUERTRA implemented a theoretical study of formal properties of Islamic geometrical art. PUERTRA modeled the Islamic rectilinear interlaced lattices found extensively in wood work (artesonado ceilings, mosque minbars, doors and windows, inlay furniture), ceramic tiles (court yards, cupola roofs), wrought iron, stucco reliefs, tapestry, and other art and architecture from the Islamic world, past and present, especially in Al-Andalus and later in Spanish Mudejar art. This theory was applied to the design and drawing of these intricate and beautiful forms.
