Architects Grey (RAL7016) (on-going)

A collection of architects greys (RAL7016) in and around the city.

Catalogued on a tumblr as a material resource for future projects: http://ral7016.tumblr.com/

Architects grey has become the default finish for many architectural ‘final touches’ – exterior panelling, doors, windows, signs, planters and swathes of hoardings all around the city are painted in the same RAL colour code.

For me it has become a symbol that the developers have or are moving in. It’s quite a nice colour, it gets around decision making, doesn’t put people off – it’s neutral and inoffensive, saleable – magnolia.

I imagine an entire city, finished in the same RAL colour.
