As far back as the earliest Greek temples, color has been an integral part of architecture but also one of its least understood elements. Color theory is rarely taught in architecture schools, leaving architects to puzzle out the hows and whys of which colors to select and how they interact, complement, or clash. Color for Architects is profusely illustrated and provides a clear, concise primer on color for designers of every kind. This latest volume in our Architecture Briefs series combines the theoretical and practical, providing the basics on which to build a fuller mastery of this essential component of design. A wealth of built examples, exercises, and activities allows students to apply their learning of color to real-world situations.

How do architects use color? Do they adopt a different strategy or starting point for every project? Do they gradually cultivate individual color palettes, which develop alongside their body of built work? Do they utilize, or are they aware of, the body of theoretical work that underpins the use of color in the past, and forms the basis of most of the color systems commercially available today? Informed by the author’s thirty years in architectural practice and academia, this book investigates, documents and analyzes the work of a number of contemporary architects in order to respond to these questions and provide a clear reference of contemporary color use. The book suggests a holistic approach to the integration of color in architecture; through a series of thematic essays, the text explores and reveals underlying principles in color design and application. Case studies include: AHMM Caruso St John Erich Wiesner and Otto Steidle Gigon/Guyer O’Donnell + Tuomey Sauerbruch Hutton Steven Holl UN Studio. The book provides clear insights into how particular contemporary architects use color confidently and intelligently as an integral part of their design philosophy, in conjunction with their choices of materials and finishes. Offering a stimulating view of the history of color theory, and pragmatic advice to practicing architects, this book will be inspiring to both design professionals and students.

"Color in Architecture: Design Methods for Buildings, Interiors, and Urban Spaces addresses every aspect of color planning and application. Going far beyond a theory-based "textbook" approach to the subject matter, Linton draws on over 200 real-world examples from an international cast of professional colorists. Case studies of various design challenges and solutions are presented in an easy-to-understand workshop format. Each of these studies let you dig a little deeper, giving you significant insight into the practices of professional color designers and illustrating how to clarify the planning concepts, capitalize on the visual properties of color, and select from the range of industrial materials available for both interior and exterior building surfaces."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Rudiment of Architectural Rendering (Pen and Ink, Colours), is a practical Architectural rendering book edited by Prof. Prabhubhai K. Patel (Emeritus Professor of Architecture from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee – Oldest Technical Institution of Asia). It contains about 45 illustration pictures of buildings rendered with colours, pen and ink. It is a book for Architects, Illustrators, Artists and Interior Designers. This book intended to develop a student studying architecture to demonstrate artistic skills in the core course needed to become an architect (Architectural Graphics), most especially in the application of colours. As an experience teacher of all levels of education from primary to university, believed that the daily practice of a good architect relies more on hand created drawings before it is done with the use of software. Hand created drawings gives a person training to be an architect to make use of the simplest intuitive connection between the mind and the hand. It also allows a consolidation of ideas developing the process of creative thinking. AutoCAD was created to aid architectural design for professional practice not to be a tool to develop an architect. The power of creativity relies on what you can create with your hand. An architect hand created drawing should be his pride and a manifesto to fire the imagination of his client. Even in the age of computer application, the use of hand in architectural graphics has become more precious. Using digital tools certainly has improved the way in which building design is organized and documented, but the computer cannot become a complete replacement for the way in which architects conceptualize and communicate their designs. Hand drawing is a gift that can’t be ignored. We need to keep doing it. We are not machines but humans and to be an architect, one must be an artist, and to be an artist, you must be creative and to be creative you must be at one with the house. Hand drafting is an art according to Walter Gropius, says in one of his quotes, ‘Children should be introduced right from the start to the potentialities of their environment, to the physical and psychological laws that govern the visual world and to the supreme enjoyment that comes from participating in the creative process of giving form to one’s living space.

Designers and architects have to make decisions regarding color every day. But how does one find the necessary inspiration? The appropriate color? How do other designers and artists deal with the issue? With Chroma, the Greek word for color, as its title, this illustrated book provides answers to these questions and makes it clear that color is much more than mere decoration – it is one of the central problems of creative work. In the process, Chroma embraces the sensuous experience of color, inspiring and seducing the reader with unusual projects, from industrial products to color field painting. The book presents works by younger designers like Stefan Diez and Arik Levy as well as famous artists like Ellsworth Kelly. All of the works are presented in large-scale reproductions and also in a kind of color gradient, in which they are assigned to the chapters "monochromatic," "multichromatic," and "achromatic." The spectrum encompasses all conceivable shades and combinations, from brilliant and colorful through tasteful and subdued all the way to black-and-white contrasts. An additional chapter analyzes the work of outstanding artists, architects, and designers like Gerhard Richter, Konstantin Grcic, and Sauerbruch Hutton, who grapple with color to an unusual degree and have formulated characteristic chromatic worlds. An alphabetical index provides background information on the artists and studios selected.

What role does colour play in our built environment? How are our attitudes to colour changing? What potential do new technologies bring for the use of colour and light in architecture? Combining real examples from practice with colour theory, this book will help you to fully understand the role and impact of colour in our urban spaces. Contributions from leading architects Will Alsop, Legorreta and Legorreta, John Outram, Sauerbruch Hutton and Neuterlings Riedijk accompany those from artists Alain Bony and Yann Kersalé, and from colour researchers such as Kristina Enberg and Anders Hård, who developed the Natural Colour System. Topics include: how and why we see colour methodologies in the documentation of traditional colours the development of new urban palettes recent colour psychology research the effect of light levels on human behaviour dramatic colour effects achievable with light guidelines for future deployment of colour in the built environment. This is a sequel to the immensely influential Colour for Architecture, published in 1976. Much has changed in 30 years; new cutting edge technologies and materials have emerged allowing architects to experiment with colour and light in an energy efficient and sustainable way, paving the way for a more colourful and exciting built environment.

From 1918 onward, Le Corbusier, who was not only an architect but also a painter, was engaged in conceiving and generating the idea of Purism, an activity he undertook in conjunction with the painter Amédée Ozenfant. Not surprisingly, paintings were their first tangible products in this field. Their reflections on the relationship between form and colour led to the determination of the so-called 'large gamma': yellow and red ochres, earthy colours, white, black, ultramarine, and a few mixed colours derived from these. With the term 'the architectonic colour', Le Corbusier (1887-1965) referred tot he profound link between this gamma and architecture. This book is an account of a significant aspect of Le Corbusier's work. It is about the way in which he arrived at a distinctly personal architectonic polychromy in the early 1920. His youthful works had been built in a traditional style, making use of local construction method and materials, and bearing the decoration he himself had created. However, with his Purist architecture, whose principles he formulated from 1920 onward and which are expressed in his architecture until 1927, he embarked upon a radically different course. His buildings were constructed in reinforced concrete, finished with a layer of plaster and then completely painted. The colours of this paintwork were taken from the gamma mentioned above, the architectonic colours. With his ideas on the polychromy of the twenties, Le Corbusier placed himself closer to Paolo Veronese, who painted the illusion of the landscape in the villas of Palladio, than to Theo van Doesburg. After the rift between Ozenfant and Le Corbusier in 1925, the latter entered a new architectonic path and the system of Purist polychromy gradually disappeared from his new work. In the 1950s, Le Corbusier gave preference to natural polychromy - the colour of the material - above painted polychromy. Whereas polychrome painting in Purist architecture had once been a.

'The nature of colour should change - no longer just a thin layer of change, but something that genuinely alters perception' - this stipulation of Rem Koolhaas is echoed by the world famous architects and designers Alessandro Mendini and Norman Foster. In this volume, they present between them a total of 90 colours - each covering half a page - accompanied by comments on the background, the significance and the applications of the colours. Studies of colours from each office form the basis of this book, and were previously only available in extravagant individual editions. With this comprehensive and consistent presentation of the varying approaches to colour, we have a compendium which shows the wide use of colour in today's technologically advanced architecture with its modern, post-modern and deconstructive orientation. The range of examples of the colours in practice includes load-bearing structures, facades, interior design, furnishing and the entire spectrum of product design.

This title was first published in 2002. This really is a text that will fill a long-felt want. A key figure in that history is Amédée Ozenfant, painter, critic and friend of Le Corbusier, who in the first half of this century founded a school in London where he conducted experiments and wrote about color in architecture. Those experiments have been reconstructed for the book, which also includes reprints of his most important articles on the subject. This book provides a fascinating survey of this most contemporary topic that will inspire and inform designers and architects. Color has often been regarded as the final dressing of a building, subject to the vagaries of fashion and left to the client to select. There have been a number of studies of polychromy in the architecture of the more distant past, particularly in relation to modern conservation practices, but there is little or nothing on the architectural color of recent times, and especially within Modernism.
