This is a serious case of Wallism.
Building clusters of tall concrete apartment blocks seemed like a good idea in the 1970s. It solved so many problems and created so many new ones.
The tall shadows they cast turned parks into waste lands where the sun shone no more.
The streets around them became dark, cold, wind tunnels.
The buildings blocked the sky and the view. Overall not a great idea.
Unfortunately it is not that easy pulling these types of structures down, and where to do you relocate all the residents of these eyesores?
You can't pull them down and you can't bring the sun back to the surrounding areas, but
you can treat the huge volume of wall space as delicious canvases upon which to paint graphic patterns.
This example of Wallism was found in Potsdam, Germany which has been famous for centuries for its extraordinarily beautiful palaces and buildings.
The world is full of great stuff, just go and have a look.
