Ombré façade, pixelated cladding, gradient finishing—you can call it whatever you want, but it won’t change the fact that technicolor design is just about everywhere. From this year’s iridescent Serpentine Pavilion to a fluorescent pool on New York City’s Roosevelt Island, the design world’s collective obsession with a commitment-phobic color palette is taking over. Recalling the background options of early aughts Power Point slides, gradients haplessly attempt to create the illusion of depth on a 2D surface, while pixelated architecture quite closely resembles a frozen computer screen. And in this way, these projects may just be tapping into our endless nostalgia for—what else?—the early Internet.

Or, at the very least, a thing.
