The Green Lattice is an alliance created in 2017 that is dedicated to protecting the art within its borders. They fill unused space with a green and black pattern, going around pre-existing artwork that others had created, and form alliances with the nearby artworks to help protect both the lattice, and the art.

Grapu is the Green Lattice's mascot. He started as a little work of art in Place 2017 that got destroyed twice and never made it to the final canvas. Over the years since then, we've grown to love him. He was rebuilt and protected on the 2022 canvas.

The North Lattice was created on April 1, 2022, in the upper right side of the canvas. It can be viewed on the atlas here.

The South Lattice

The approximate borders of the Southern Green Lattice (note our only ally south of the Deltarune characters is Juke's Towers of Hell).

The South Lattice was created on April 3, 2022 after the second expansion, approximately in the center of the southwest quadrant of the canvas. It can be viewed on the atlas here.

Return

When Reddit announced that r/place would be returning April 1, 2022, the Green Lattice Discord server sprung back to life, and they started making plans for their return to r/place. When r/place 2022 finally began, their members started constructing their green and black pattern, or lattice, in the upper-right side of the canvas. After a few attempts at constructing their banner, they managed to build it to the west, near the current location of the Red Rising banner.

First Alliances and Conflicts

As the canvas started to fill up, the Green Lattice made alliances with their neighbors, 2b2t, Geometry Dash, and r/monero. Their neighbors Portugal and Spain were slowly encroaching on their territory, but the r/gamestonk line formed a border between the flags and the lattice.

History

Origin

The Green Lattice pattern started organically. As a random set of green pixels in the upper middle right of the canvas, it started to form a consistent pattern. A few posts were made on to the subreddit discussing the development of the pattern. Those posts brought more attention and increased the speed of growth. As more people took notice that it was becoming more than just a random patch of pixels, a subreddit was made, and then a discord. The makers of the subreddit and the Discord server were not aware of each other at the start, but they quickly joined forces.

Color Changes

Early Green Lattice was a pattern of green and light green with a white background. This formed quickly because the r/place 2017 started as a blank white canvas. As development continued many random color pixel were being place in the pattern causing it to look dirty.

As a solution and partial collaboration with the Black Border Project trying to add a black outline to the canvas, Green Lattice started the process of changing the white to black. This helped us have more clear territorial boundaries and The Black Void would have much less of an impact if they would attack.

This color changing process was used in r/place 2022, where we use the white to expand quickly, and the black to protect what we already have.
