Happy Valentine's Day! Have you given chocolate to your lover? Have you received chocolate from your girlfriend? Instead of chocolate or flower banquets, we would like to present architecture and interior design with PINK as theme color to you in order to give a LOVE ambience!
1. La Muralla Roja by Ricardo Bofill
Within the context of La Manzanera, La Muralla Roja (The Red Wall) asks to be considered as a case apart. It embodies a clear reference to the popular architecture of the Arab Mediterranean, in particular to the adobe towers of North Africa. The Red Wall is like a fortress which marks a vertical silhouette following the contour lines of the rocky cliff.

2. Her House by Wutopia Lab
In the adjacent Her House, visitors enter through a walled garden and cross a patio covered in pink rock salt to match the pastel pink facade. Her House is supposed to embody "sensitivity and delicacy" of the feminine. Outside, pale curtains shelter the veranda and a galleried balcony above in a "veil...implying the introversion of female life".

3. Torrebaró Apartments Building, Universitat de Barcelona by MIAS Architects
The building wants to be the volumetric reference of the object of the competition and the specific urban development of this area, as well as the public space that is defined by the development of this planning.

4. Clay Fields by Riches Hawley Mikhail
The project has a number of sustainable measures incorporated in keeping with the ethos of the project; to be carbon neutral and an exemplar of sustainable housing design. A woodchip Biomass boiler provides heating and hot water to every house, south-facing glazing allows passive solar gain and whole house ventilation gives a healthy home environment.

6. Huaxiang Church by INUCE
A pastel-pink church hall has been added to the 1930s-built Huaxiang Church in Fuzhou, southeastern China, featuring rooftop amphitheatres that offer open-air services. Architecture studio Inuce, which has offices in China and Switzerland, designed the church hall and community centre to accommodate the growing number of Christians in the local area, who no longer fitted inside the 80-year-old church.

8. The Pink Zebra by Renesa Architecture Design Interiors
The Pink Zebra aka Feast India Co. (FIC) is a take on the bygone British Culture in the city of Cawnpore. With the extravagance of the European Grandeur, not many know how important the city of Cawnpore was to the British Corporation of India. The design story initiates the change over time by re-writing an architectural essay through this space amalgamation of old with the quirkiness of Art Nouveau glitz which can be seen throughout the city.

9. Night Tales by Sella Concept
A pink colour scheme was used throughout the bar. Salmon-coloured resin forms a series of booth seats, while rose-hued circular mirrors provide decoration.

10. Patisserie III by Ideo arquitectura
With this project the designers are facing a new design for the third bakery in Madrid that starts up Pan and Cakes. The client follows the philosophy that each store must be unique and different from the previous one and the only conditioning that it demands is the presence of the magenta color as a corporate image.
