World's most colourful buildings revealed

Hamburg, Nov 13 : Despite the dullness that comes along with the concrete jungle, there are a number of these colourful, mesmerizing buildings that do catch our eyes.

High-rise buildings now don't have to get lost in the gray concrete jungles, as some of them contain vivid facades in scarlet, turquoise, canary yellow - or even combining all the colours of the rainbow.

According to the website, www.emporis.com, a list of the world's most colourful high-rises has now been compiled.

In the case of Colorium, which is probably the best-known building in Dusseldorf's Medienhafen, the building's exceptional aluminum ribbon window facade, consisting of over 2,200 panels of glass, was screen-printed with 17 different geometric patterns of single or up to four colours.

The positively idyllic-seeming First World Hotel in Genting, Malaysia, radiates joie-de-vivre, fun and - not least - rest and recuperation from humdrum routine from every inch of its luminous bright facade. There is a comprehensive range of entertainments on offer around the campus, including an amusement park, casino, theatre stage and further attractions.

The shimmering copper-coloured facade of Mercury City in Moscow, on the other hand, might not be able to compete with the fascinating play of colours at the First World Hotel, but, with its imposing and noble visual appearance, succeeds in demonstrating that a brilliant show is perfectly possible with just the one colour.

According to researchers at the University of Essex in England, bright colours have a positive effect on the mood, the memory and reaction times of those looking at them.
