A Very Blue Building

That’s about as blue as a building can get.
The borough of Delfshaven, Rotterdam, asked Schildersbedrijf N&F Hijnen to come up with a plan for a block of derelict buildings, which will eventually be demolished. The agreement with the neighbourhood is that the block will remain blue as long as there isn't a new plan for the area.

This was once one of the most unseen blocks of houses in Rotterdam, and by applying a layer of only 2 micron of blue paint onto it, it became Rotterdam's most photographed one.

I still think it's cool that they're at least doing something different with a soon to be demolished building. One of my favorite things about Holland is how they will cover up buildings while working on them, sometimes wrapping them like giant presents before they are unveiled.

A neighbor down the street from me painted his house that color. What an eyesore. Much as I hate the thought of a homeowners' association, avoiding that sort of does have its appeal.
