Coloring Up Downtown's Eastside

Metropolis Magazine features this bit of spicy candy from local architecture firm Rios Clementi Hale Studios. Designed for the California Endowment, the health care advocacy group, the building's bold colors and innovative design make us love health care. As explained on the CE's web site, its new home (1000 Alameda) is intended to provide a gathering space for people to educate themselves about staying healthy while also serving as the headquarters for the organization. The bold colors are meant to reflect the colors existing in the community - no, not skin color, that's racist. It's meant to reflect terra-cotta in Chinatown and ochre for the beigeness of Union Station.
