We see architecture once light strikes its surfaces and is reflected, refracted, deflected, or absorbed by them. We see white and yellow elements first, followed by medium tints, and finally very dark ones. This fact allows us to formulate a general rule for color design: use light colors to emphasize walls and objects, mild gray colors such as this one to make walls and objects less apparent, and dark colors to shift elements completely into the shadows. Gradations of light-to-dark grays create hierarchies of meaning.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
