At this time of week I’m usually searching for a new topic for this blog. Sometimes ideas appear magically, other times it’s a lot more work. This week an idea was dropped into my lap. In my mailbox I found a link to a post about a new store in Japan that is designed to sell color pigments, especially rare and disappearing ones.
I immediately thought about last week’s post Pigments and Dyes: Where Do Colors Come From? At the same time, I was struck by the fascinating design of the space which reminded me of An Ocean of Books, a recent post which discussed the Tianjin Binhai Library in China.
Color. Architecture. Maybe there’s a connection.
The solution to the search for this week’s topic is an assortment of links to articles about color pigments, and color and architecture. Some of these sites have an in-depth essay, others a collection of images. Many of the architecture posts are from ArchDaily, a great source for new international architectural projects.
