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. Colours in the city and coun­try, his­toric obser­va­tions on the cul­ture of colour, facts on colour’s main spa­tial effects, its mate­ri­al­i­ty, on the influ­ence of light and colour on design, and on colour schemes and sys­tems round out the book’s the­o­ret­i­cal sec­tion. Exam­ples of colour use in inte­ri­ors and on exte­ri­ors in var­i­ous inter­na­tion­al projects high­light suc­cess­ful instances of colour design and pro­vide inspi­ra­tion for read­ers own work.
