Tiling Generation

It’s difficult to design a tiling that fills the plane, is edge-to-edge, with no gaps and no overlaps, if you start mixing pentagons with squares and hexagons. This particular tiling is just VERY STRANGE in that it has two seemingly incompatible lattices in connection. So, from my point of view, it’s very jarring – even irritating in that it forces two systems into one, almost. It’s intentionally irksome.
