That Face

king fahad LibraryMost buildings have a face or facade. The face can be made of a number of different materials. The face can say a lot about a building or nothing at all. Some faces can be a billboard and energy saver at the same time. Some can turn heads. Some can change air movement. Some can capture the sun. Some can be very cheap while some can be very expensive. Some are mirrors which reflect while some can be clear as glass. Some are quite thin and some can be quite thick.

A building facade can express the mood or characteristics  of its citizens; Day or night, Urban or rural. Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. They can be timeless or of the moment. Here today, gone tomorrow.

Building facades are much like the clothes we where.

It’s cold out side today. Is your building dressed for the occasion?
