9783764375966: Color - Communication in Architectural Space

Colors are an element of both the natural and the man-made environments. They convey messages of all kinds and perform a wide variety of functions, informing, organizing, warning. But they also serve an aesthetic purpose, affecting the statement, effect, and acceptance of objects and spaces. While peoples reactions to color vary widely, in design questions it is still possible to establish generally valid color concepts to match the expectations of the various groups of users. This book offers a guide based on a wide range of scientific findings and may be consulted as an authoritative reference by the architecture student and the professional alike. The three editors, Dr. B. Rodeck, Prof. G. Meerwein, and F. H. Mahnke have taught for many years at the Salzburger Seminare für Farbe und Umwelt der IACC.

From the Back Cover:

Colors are an integral part of our natural or designed environment. They convey all forms of messages and fulfill different functions: they inform, structure, and warn. Colors also fulfill aesthetic means, influence the statement, effect, and acceptance of objects and spaces. As different as reactions to colors are, it is possible to establish effective color concepts within a design context, which correspond to the expectations of different user groups. This book is a manual based on manifold scientific findings, and a qualified guideline for the architectural student or the professional.
