Chameleon Building Changes Color With the Seasons

This apartment building in Helsinki beautifully changes color with the seasons, thanks to the virginia creeper plant that grows on the south facade. In the summer the building is covered with lush green leaves and in the fall the color changes to screaming red. In the winter the actual beige facade shows through since the leaves have fallen off. This colourful play affects the atmosphere of the whole area in a properly biophilic manner!
