What I love about Thailand – Part 1

The architecture

Thais have a style of their own.

It often involves wild colour combinations. I see it in electronic documents, advertising, and especially the architecture.

Here’s where they’ll use vivid pastel colours you won’t find in a Dulux catalogue.

No doubt there’s a simple and widely-known explanation for how these colours are achieved, but I don’t yet know it. Each case of this technique seems to produce a unique colour, which suggests that it’s manually ‘brewed’.

Below is a small sample. The buildings shown are all within a circle maybe 5km across.

Watch this space, I’ll add images to this post as I collect them.
