Pantone于近日公布了2020年度代表色“经典蓝”（Classic Blue），并将其描述为一种沉稳而宁静的、能够“强调我们对于迈向新时代时可依靠的稳固基础的心愿”的色彩。放眼建筑行业，来自丹麦的事务所Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects将这款经典蓝运用到了其最新的两个大型项目当中: 伦敦的威斯敏斯特城市学院，以及格陵兰的Katuaq文化中心。
Pantone recently announced its color of the year, and 2020 will be the year of Classic Blue. Pantone describes Classic Blue as a calm and restful hue that “highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.” In architecture, Danish firm Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects has woven Classic Blue into two marquee projects – the Katuaq Cultural Centre in Nuuk, Greenland; and the City of Westminster College in London.
City of Westminster College
The flagship campus for City of Westminster College in London is designed to support new ways of teaching and learning. The 24,000m2 college provides much greater amounts of open learning spaces than typical colleges in the UK. The College is located in the heart of Central London at Paddington Green on the site of its previous building, an inefficient and failing 1960s block. The building has been designed from the inside-out, responding to the needs of the diverse groups who use the College, as well as taking into account the sensitive local context. It appears as a clean-cut, modern building with a distinct Nordic heritage.
City of Westminster College Paddington Green Campus has won the prestigious 2011 RIBA Award, one of the most rigorously judged architectural awards schemes in the world.
Katuaq Cultural Centre in Greenland
The foyer of the Katuaq Cultural Centre in Greenland serves as an indoor public piazza and is divided into separate areas by three free-standing geometric structures housing the main facilities of the Cultural Centre: a square box for the TV studio, a triangular structure for the café and a circular form for the multi-purpose auditorium. The auditorium seats 550 people and can also be used as a cinema, theatre, concert hall or conference hall.
