Sometimes art, architecture and art therapy meet each other. That’s what happens for the facade of the Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, projected by American artist Spencer Finch, based on studies of reflection and absorption of natural colors in water. The final composition is abstract but references the impressionist pigment perception, Monet water lily paintings and the colors of a wisteria tree. 25,000 square meters of 26 different colors which are not – according to the artist – just the exterior of the building, but contribute to create generous conditions of natural light in order to warm and lighten the souls of employees and patients. Even colors were not chosen by chance, as the artist spent months testing a wide range of colors in order to find the palette that would best fit the tone of Baltimore’s daytime sky.
