Pearly Colors

Close to my home, in Amsterdam, a new building has appeared recently which is covered with a new breed of pearly colored cladding. The colors change constantly, depending on the light. It may be that I'm a little over-sensitive to color, but it makes me slightly nauseated. It's a nice building, a school, but I just wish that the colors would stay put for a while.
