Why Do Architects Prefer Orange?
Florence. I grew up in a town called Florence.
And, as you’re reading this post over your coffee, eyes bleary, I am flying into Florence.
I’ve never been to this mythic place, but I’ve seen pictures. My architect friends post them to various social media.
They really care—A LOT—about the color orange. Burnt Sienna seems to be their favorite, and from what I’ve seen in photographs, it makes up the majority of the original Florence.
MTM has an orange bike shirt. When he rides the streets of Florence in preparation for the L’Eroica, will cars even see him? Or, will he blend into the orange background? Orange, orange everywhere………………
I don’t understand why architects prefer orange.
So, the best explanation in a comment (totally arbitrary; it has to make both MTM and me laugh) will win a prize direct from the original Florence.
I will try not to make it be orange.
MTM may have other ideas.
I fully intend to visit blogs, comment and respond to comments while I am at the L’Eroica. Please forgive me if I am not as swift as I may be at home. I will get there. I promise.
