How can colour design spaces? How do colour and space interact? Drawing on buildings 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 features a specific way of planning the interplay of colour and space. In one example, colour reinforces and clarifies the architectural form, while in another the colour interprets the form in a playful way. In one instance, we immersed a bath of colour on entering the room, while in another the colour tempts the viewer to enter the room and take up different viewing points.
The Haus der Farbe and the University of Edinburgh have collaborated to explore the spatial potential of these various colour strategies and present them in words and images. Large format colour plates illustrate the versatility of colour when it occurs in dialogue with architecture.
