The August issue of Canadian Architect magazine included a brilliant article by Pamela Young, Editor of CFM&D magazine, “Seeing in Colour.”
With her permission, I quote the following: “Ideally, the skin of a building would be a work of art….”. She highlights a building with a façade incorporating elements in multiple shades of red, blue and green, resulting in a remarkable structure. Yet somehow it was decided that the “skin” of the new VJH Tower would be finished in shades of grey! Grey? Grey skin? I would not wish this colour on the proposed jail, let alone our hospital.
