When applied in masterful brushstrokes to the built environment, color has an incredible visceral impact on human experience of space. While previous titles have looked at the use of color in print design, Color and Space is the logical next volume, focusing entirely on color in architecture and design.

The utilization of color in these projects ranges from entire building interior and exteriors painted matching neon green to painted yellow “shadows” falling poetically beneath table and store fixtures to giant skyscrapers completely covered in purple and white stained glass panels.

Types of spaces featured include retail, restaurants, offices, schools and play spaces, museums, and sporting and event facilities. Commissions for Versace, IBM, Godiva Chocolatier, and Louis Vuitton hold their own against sculptural installations such as Olafur Eliasson’s “rainbow panorama” architectural sky walk on the top level of ARoS Aarhus museum in Denmark — an immersive color wheel in human scale created out of colored glass floor to ceiling windows. Signage, lighting, windows, paint choices, flooring and furniture elements are all considered in this tour of the world’s most remarkable and colorful buildings.
