Description

Discover the spatial potential of colour! Colour Strategies in Architecture explores the potential of colour to modify space and the way in which buildings are perceived.

Drawing on examples from the 20th and 21st centuries, ranging from architectural icons to hidden gems, the volume presents six different strategies for working with colour in architecture. Each chapter presents a specific way of planning the interplay of colour and space. In each case, colour gives the architecture identity and creates an added value that is both creative and functional. The colour strategies are presented in words and images. Large format colour plates illustrate the versatility of colour in dialogue with architecture. Abstract building portraits show the proportion, palette and use of colour on specific buildings. The book provides inspiration for professionals and students alike and suggests different ways to use and celebrate colour in architectural design.

• six colour strategies are discussed on the basis of buildings in Berlin, Zürich and Edinburgh.

• The Haus der Farbe and the University of Edinburgh have collaborated to explore the spatial potential of these various colour strategies. Both will heavily promote

• Unique Strategies supported by high quality original artworks
