About this book

Introduction

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.
