New Theme: Colour

This winter in the Netherlands has been pretty grey so far. Time for more colour to enliven our days. Strange that in architecture, colour is so seldom discussed even if it is part of every single piece of architecture. The book Colour in Contemporary Architecture, edited by Susanne Komossa, Kees Rouw and Joost Hillen (Amsterdam: SUN Publishers 2009) is a welcome exception. The book provides an interesting view into theories, manifestoes and projects regarding colour in architecture, from the work of James Stirling to Luis Barragan, Steven Holl to Sauerbruch Hutton.
Waiting for spring, Writingplace wonders what colours tell, how they alter our experience of buildings and cities, and how we use them in architectural design.
