Hardback.  First edition. Do colors have different spatial and architectural effects? What is the psychological impact of color? Are colors endowed with symbolic meaning? What is a natural color? Those questions have a long, contentious history, especially among architects of the modern period. A key figure in that history is Amédée Ozenfant, painter, critic and friend of Le Corbusier, who in the first half of this century founded a school in London where he conducted experiments and wrote about color in architecture. Those experiments have been reconstructed for the book, which also includes reprints of his most important articles on the subject. This book provides a fascinating survey of this most contemporary topic that will inspire and inform designers and architects.

Condition: Some small patches of wear to bottom edge of boards, otherwise very good.
