DETAIL Prac­tice Colour

Visual spatial effects and communication

Colours affect people, induce emotions and often evoke memories, which is why not only artists but also scientists, psychologists, planners, and writers are all preoccupied with colour. Choosing colour is a very demanding task for architects, one that can have an enormous impact if it is carried out professionally.

Colour in the past, pre­sent and future

DETAIL Prac­tice »Colour« pro­vi­des the exper­ti­se that every archi­tect working with colour needs, covering colour theo­ry and the laws of colour har­mo­ny through the basics of colour per­cep­ti­on and colour’s effects, and up to stra­te­gies for deve­lo­ping con­sis­tent colour con­cepts in the design pro­cess.
