Paul A. Castrucci Architect team for project 312-322 Canal continue the search for the best Terracotta samples for the facade. When samples arrived the firm usually reviews them over coffee and cookies this time the architectural samples that arrived are too light. Next, design meeting the firm will review all samples and continue to navigate the design process around the rich world of red hues and terracotta finishes.

Short fun video on where the creative process goes (spoiler alert : you might find color inspiration in your fridge)
