- An interlaced structure or pattern resembling this
- an arrangement of points or particles or objects in a regular periodic pattern in 2 or 3 dimensions

Written by the author of the lattice system, this book describes lattice in considerable depth, beginning with the essentials and systematically delving into specific low levels details as necessary. No prior experience with lattice is required to read the book, although basic familiarity with R is assumed. The book contains close to 150 figures produced with lattice. Many of the examples emphasize principles of good graphical design; almost all use real data sets that are publicly available in various R packages. All code and figures in the book are also available online, along with supplementary material covering more advanced topics.
Key West's long and colorful past begins with its European discovery in 1513 by Ponce de Leon. The island was first known as Cayo Hueso (Isle of Bones) because it was littered with remains from an Indian battlefield or burial ground. The name "Key West" is the English version of the Spanish term. The first permanent occupancy in the City occurred in 1822, complete with a small naval depot, whose purpose was to rid the area of pirates. The presence of the U.S. Navy has been a major factor in the growth and development of Key West ever since. The settlement was incorporated in 1828, four years after becoming the county seat of Monroe County. The City grew and prospered, based first on fishing and salvaging ships wrecked on the nearby reefs, and later on cigar manufacturing with Cuban refugees and imported Cuban tobacco. Other economic activities included sponging and related commercial functions. By 1890, Key West was the largest and richest city in Florida. However, after the turn of the century its major industries were in decline. Little construction was undertaken between the First and Second World Wars and the City saw a steady decline in population between 1919 and 1935.
World War II brought prosperity back to Key West. Population more than doubled between 1940 and 1960. Nation-wide military base closings and personnel reductions beginning in the 1960s were major contributors to the City's second major cycle of population decline. After recording the highest number of residents in it's history in 1960, Key West experienced over a 25 percent loss in population by 1980. The 1990 Census showed a slight increase.
There are large numbers of buildings in the community that are near or over a century old. The historical structures of Key West are not grand public facilities, as churches and government buildings, but are homes and cottages-still in private ownership-built by persons without formal architectural training. These historical buildings are found in a 190 block ( 919 acre) area in the western end of the City. Within the historical area are 2,580 structures containing the greatest cluster of wooden buildings in Florida and one of the largest concentrations in the U.S. Generally, the structures date from 1886 to 1912, but they represent the building tradition of Key West from 1838.
The city's historical area, known as "Old Town", has a very distinctive appearance, combining features of both New England and Bahamian building styles. The basic features which distinguish the local architecture includes wood frame construction of one to two-and-a-half story structures set on foundation piers about three feet above the ground. Exterior characteristics of the buildings are peaked "tin" roofs, horizontal wood siding, pastel shades of paint, side-hinged louvered shutters, covered porches (or balconies, galleries, or verandas) along the fronts of the structures, and wood lattice screens covering the area elevated by the piers. A small but striking characteristic is the wooden balustrade and other ornamental trim present around the porches. The neighborhoods in which these buildings are located have their own distinctive features. These include a grid street pattern, buildings set close to each other and to the street, a diverse mix of building sizes and heights, fences of wood picket or wrought iron or low masonry walls, and dozens of alleys or lanes, with their own cluster of dwellings, entering the local street system at irregular intervals.

Unlike the older architectural styles, modern architecture doesn't fit into styles. Buildings designed today are typically wholly unique entities created by the architect who envisioned them, incorporating materials and features they prefer, whether a local vernacular or something exotic that strikes their fancy. Many features are universal, so in many cases, it can be very difficult to place a modern building just by looking at its design.
In one type of modern building design common in Canada, materials include wood and stone, which are in abundance, metal, and glass. The form of the building typically includes a sloped roof to prevent snow built up, high ceilings, and large south facing windows, and wood lattice structures, the most notable of which being the atrium of the Health Sciences Centre. Details are typically functional as opposed to ornamental. In this image the wood soffit extending over the north window is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. (As opposed to the typical aluminum soffits you would find on a house.) The metal wires holding up the awning above the entrance were placed in a way that worked with the lines on the building, as opposed to being in the way. The two metal columns supporting the overhang above the door extend to the roof and support the overhang above the modern frontispiece. The facade material is likely an "external insulation and finishing system", a synthetic material that insulates the building and can mimic the appearance of a wide variety of building materials, but I don't know exactly.
This building was designed by local firm Kuch Stephenson Gibson Malo Architects and Engineer. It incorporates a variety of green building solutions and was nominated for two 2008 Wood Works awards.
