    Starting to wonder if there is a bot set up to scan pictured of new york city that are mostly red and post them to this blog! (I jest)

    Do you think that having warm coloration should be a law of architectural design?


  2. But, in semi seriousness: all I’m hoping to do is highlight the fact that when you’re in neighborhood of trad architecture and urbanism you’re generally in a much more colorful (and, as you point out, often much more warm) place than when you’re in a chic new building or neighborhood. Check out Blowhard Esq’s recent visit to L.A.’s new Broad Museum for additional confirmation:

    It’s such a basic thing to notice and highlight, isn’t it? I’m sort of surprised that high-end architectural commentators aren’t taking regular note of it. But I’m sort of not-surprised too — intellectuals and insiders will be prone to losing themselves in inessentials.
