Colored glass


One strategy we haven’t tried (yet) is to use slightly different colors of vision glass to create a more pronounced composition at night. This is what I always liked best about Toyo Ito’s Sendai Mediatheque. Importantly, the difference in glass colors – and vision performance – are indistinguishable during the day. Bâtiment administratif du centre bus RATP, a bus depot with associated staff offices in Paris by ECDM architects, is only a more radical (and impractical for most users) example.
