Check out the stunning new Theatre Agora in Leylstad, the Netherlands. This bright and upbeat building is meant to bring a bit of color to the sober postwar architecture of this Dutch city. The colors are bold. I’m not sure this building will have staying power, but I’m proud of architects who have broken free of the stale palette of white, silver, and black.

This is Man Against World’s 20th post. Yay! Feedback and ideas for our future are welcomed.
