patterned buildings

i wonder why patterns are not done more often on buildings... sort of like outdoor wallpaper, the effect is just gorgeous. here are a few examples of relief pattern on some local buildings.
a home with a carved pattern accented by squares of color... so pretty.
 the missoni storefront in beverly hills. the texture is made from linear slats... 
vines are guided with strings to make dimensional pattern on the wall.
