A friend and I were recently talking about the use of color in architecture. For many years, it has seemed like the color orange has been the default for architects designing on the cutting edge. Recently, lime green has been making a move as designers' go-to color, but its already starting to seem passe. I'd like to suggest (although, I'm probably not the first) that multi-colored or rainbow-colored is the new 'it' color scheme for architects... and based on these projects, I think you will probably agree.
