Color in Architecture — More Than Just Decoration | Features | Archinect
This article is incredibly interesting and was just the encouragement I needed before embarking on a day of uni work today. There are so many topics I would like to know more about and the more I learn about design the more I want to know. Right now I’m particularly interested in the psychological effects of design in the built environment. When I finished high school I started studying psychology before completely committing to theatre. It’s amusing that my interest in and passion for theatre lighting has led me to investigate design more generally which has in turn led me back to psychology.
Without doubt, the assumption that color is no more than decoration and color specifications can be satisfied or solved by personal interpretations or the following of color trends and design idioms in current fashion is absolutely false and counterproductive.
