The Colours of…. | Birkhäuser publication

The Colours Of.... | Birkhäuser, 2015

Recently, Birkhäuser published “The Colours of…“, a 376-page publication, including 250 color illustrations – by Iwan Baan, Christian Richters, Roland Halbe and Philippe Ruault -, described as a specifier of material, substance, light, texture, form and colour – and in the end of human emotion. […] Color is inextricably linked with architecture; as a design element and also as an inherent quality, it characterizes the shape and texture of the built fabric.
Highlighting the work of Frank O. Gehry, Jean Nouvel, Wang Shu and a handfull of other well-known architects, MovingCities contributed to “The Colours of…” with a 3,000 word essay – called Wang Shu, Translating tradition for modern times. Order here, GoogleBooks there and preview after the break.
