Color disputes in Phoenix
Newszap.com has this story about a new library branch in Phoenix. Slated to open in February 2005, the library was designed by the firm Richard + Bauer. Some large boxes on top of the building, containing the air handling units, were originally painted "sage green, dark gold and blue-gray." Residents complained that the colors did not mesh with the surrounding desert, and the colors were modified to match the "desert palette."
Okay, so it's not quite as fun to read about as Seattle, but it's interesting enough.
