PINK

Awaiting demolition within several months, this building at the corner Grote Markt/Poelestraat in Groningen was painted pink last November. And not just a little bit pink but REALLY pink. For the new building that is going to arise a choice will have to be made from 3 designs, in which the inhabitants of the city also have a vote.

Why pink? I don't know. In fact a lot of people don't know and many of them are "not amused" by it. But according to the city council, the fact that the paint job "suddenly" happened without being announced in front should make clear that Groningen is a continuously changing city. The text in Dutch says:
Do you ever stop to realise?  
The city never stops 
And neither do I

  1. You certainly wouldn't fail to notice it! Good news for manufacturers of pink paint.

  2. Een waarheid als een koe. Zelf vind ik deze kleur hier toch een beetje misplaatst.

  3. Na dat regenboog zebrapad, zou je de link daarmee kunnen leggen. Maar deze kleur doet pijn aan je ogen, moet maar gauw verdwijnen.

  6. Very identifiable building. We bought a house once that the kitchen was painted in pink and we spent 2 days repainting it. :)

  7. Pink house would be ok., if it would be lower and smaller. But this one is really striking, i.e. you can see it for ever.

  8. That's awful. At first I thought it reminded me of Boca Raton, Florida where everything is painted pink and beige and salmon, etc. But then I realized you'd get put in jail in Boca if you painted this color on anything! :))

  9. I don't think I have ever seen such a large building painted in so vibrant a pink. It demands attention if nothing else.
