I am Paul Eis, a 19 years old architecture student. In the summer of 2015, I was walking through the streets of Berlin looking for some nice architecture to photograph. But I had to realize how monotonous the cityscape of my hometown is in the most places.

I thought how it would look like when the buildings are not as gray as they are, but being colorful.

So I started to add bright colors to my photos and posting them on Instagram.

Because of the overwhelming feedback, I got there I started a larger series. And I did not stay in Berlin. I also photographed buildings from different cities in Germany like Hamburg and Munich. But also from the Netherlands and recently from Austria where I started to study last year.

I think colors could help to make the architecture more interesting and more lively.

Funny that this Inner Courtyard is actually not artificially colored, apart from the one section to the right ;-) Sometimes, Berlin really is colorful!
