This is a nice one!
Thanks, Claudia. They probably used the same bricks as were used in the Eastern Building. I love the blue bricks!
Yes. I have not seen anything like this here ( Philadelphia). Interesting.
I remember the seeing the building that looks like a modern Chrysler Building in Philly. But alas, no blue bricks…
No, it is glass, and reflects the sky, I guess, plus being blue to start with. The blue bricks make me think of something I learned in college, about how ancient people, I believe the Assyrians, painted their brick walls in colors that accentuated the bas-reliefs. I think I’m mixing up my ancient peoples here but the effect was wonderful, and blue bricks…why do we not have more building like this???
Yes, I remember the term ‘polychrome’ used to describe some ancient sculptures. I remember being amazed about that tidbit of info. I guess at that point, I only saw black and white photos of ancient works.
I was introduced to polychrome (thank you for the word!) as a college student in a class where we looked at the images as slides, so they were in color and big. Wow. What an impact.
Yes, color in ancient times!
