Chromatic building exteriors give city skylines playful twist
Implications - Architects are having more fun when it comes to building facades, and one way they are doing so is by creating colorful and vibrant exteriors that give city skylines a playful, whimsical and lighthearted touch. These colorful building exteriors eschew the classic black, white and grey -- or blue glass -- aesthetic, capturing the attention of urban dwellers and steering architecture in a fun and fresh direction.
