The Bleu House in Rotterdam

This house in Rotterdam was scheduled to be demolished before the local government hired a firm to “spruce it up” a bit to temporarily keep the house standing. All they did was add 2 microns of blue paint to the house and it transformed this tiny part of Rotterdam. This house is especially important for me because it shows how magnificent an effect such a miniscule change can have. The tiny amount of paint that was added to the house has reverberated throughout the community, a place that was before overlooked entirely. Since these photographs were taken however, unfortunately the building has been demolished due to its age. The Bleu House in RotterdamBefore the paintAfter the paint

Hi Natasha, this is pretty amazing and unique! I still don’t quite understand how only two microns of blue paint can make the entire exterior of the building blue! Can you explain it more? Thanks! 🙂
