The Adaptive CSS Zen Garden

In my talks and workshops about responsive web design and adaptive layouts I always take some time to take a look at CSS Zen Garden, since a part of building an adaptive layout is based on the same principle as the Zen Garden has been promoting all these years: the same content can be styled differently by using CSS. I always wanted to make a version of the CSS Zen Garden where a different layout is shown on every different resolution. I never built that thing because it would be way too much work for me, I’m not a very good coder.

Today I talked about this idea while I was giving a workshop. From that moment on Roy Tomeij, who was attending, was more silent than usual. Ten minutes later he interrupted me with this masterpiece. Ladies and gentleman, I present you the Adaptive CSS Zen Garden. Resize your browser window at your own risk!
