The World’s Most Colorful Buildings

For some reason, most of the world seems to be stuck in a rut when it comes to building colors. But the buildings on this list abandon the usual grays, browns, yellows and whites for bold splashes of color. Most people would probably prefer having colorful buildings like these, but there are a few practical reasons why it’s hard to have such a colorful building. Maintaining a complex and colorful facade is far more difficult and expensive than maintaining one painted with a single color, and most expensive paints with special anti-corrosive or weatherproof properties are only produced in a few common colors.
