Color for Architects (Architecture Brief), Paperback / softback Book

Color for Architects (Architecture Brief) Paperback / softback


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.
