Painted with light

White color in architecture although it could be felt a bit lifeless actually can be very animated if there are two conditions: there are alive elements as plants and if you study the game of volumes with artificial and natural lights.

Without vegetation empty walls can seem classy as Greek ruins but also dead as Greek ruins.

Now if you want to really take advantage of white walls then you have to let the colors of sky tint them with every gradation of red, purple and indeed every colour you can find in the nature. And also are the artificial sources that even can mirrors your mood.

This was taken in Compañía de Jesús cloisters. It’s a place quite silent despite its location in the centre of the busy city.
