Thanks for sharing. While I don't have anything particular to show from "corona" times I could share some pics from the random trips I took in past years. But that probably misses the point.

Some cities in the Aegean cost have city laws dictating that the households will either be painted white or they will be stone houses etc. Itís illegal to paint them with any other color. Itís a zoning law to preserve the traditional fabric of the towns.

looks better than the caleidoscope of retardation I've seen in Poland, in the soviet era apartment block "renovations".

Every color imaginable. Looked disgusting.

Yeah, sometimes there's a lot "going on" in terms of how the ol' asbestos blocks are renovated.

It might be becasue of the "scar" Poland has as far as urban planning goes. For many year there was no control over it with so-called "urbanists" not doing their job properly (just taking the money or worse case bribes) and no urban planning to speak of. Add communism with it's idea of aestethics and you have a reciepie for disaster. There are a lot of famous so called "nightmares of architecture" dotting the land like this one:

I think there are still folks in charge who don't exactly know what they're doing but it's steadily improving.

Thank the lockdown for that. Normally, Athens is covered in a wonderful cloud of smog.

Blocks with unattended facades look even more disgusting imo, though not by much. Architects who still fawn over Soviet era brutalist buildings and monuments really need to get their sense of aesthetics in order.

It's an excellent example of what we here call Kolkhoz Baroque.


@Count:

Like if they renovate a block, they could at least agree on a single color. now you have a rainbow of retardation.

Also regarding aesthetic, same goes for tards who fawn over the waste of space and materials people call "post modernist" architecture.

You sure you're not talking about Finland?

Even getting to zero does not happen that often, much less below. Hitting 40 on summer on the other hand..
