Colour is an inseparable aspect of architecture, but often provokes strong reactions. In the book “Colour in Contemporary Architecture” presents the main approaches to colour in architecture.
Although no one will deny the importance of colour in architecture, little has been published about it. This book presents the main approaches to colour in architecture. It contains descriptions of sixteen modern projects, essays, a timeline from 1800 to the present, and many original contributions by architects on colour and its use.
With contributions by: Susanne Komossa, Kees Rouw, Joost Hillen, Bas Gremmen & Liisa Aholainen, Mark Pimlott, Kazu Blumfeld Hanada & Heike Blumfeld Hanada, Michiel Riedijk, Udo Garritzmann, Heide Hinterthur and Nynke Jutten.
Suzanne Komossa is a lecturer in Architectural Design at the Faculty of Architecture of the Technological University Delft. Kees Rouw and Joost Hillen are both architects and researchers.
