Colors: Architecture in Detail
Rockport Publishers, 2004 - 190 страници
The third book in the Architecture in Detail series, Color looks at ways in which leading architects exploit the possibilities of the chromatic spectrum. The subtle way in which black is applied to frame and organize space, the daring punctuation of red and orange, the ways in which natural materials are used and altered in unexpected ways, all suggest not just the attention of the designer but the presence of a passion for subtle gestures, that taken together form powerful spatial images. Designed by Oscar Riera Ojeda and featuring the exquisite photography of Paul Warchol, Colors chronicles recent work in residential, civic and commercial buildings. An introductory essay by James McCown places the subject of architectural color within an historical perspective. Far from being frivolous and capricious, color in nature and throughout human history has been of extreme importance. Preferences for and feelings about color are highly personal and subjective, making their application in architectural practice all the more fascinating. See the primary colors of red, blue and yellow - and many other blues - and how the varied palette informs. influences and enlivens building in our time.
