Abstract

Three aspects are capturing the attention of contemporary architecture: language, politics and economy. Around these topics we can understand some keypoints managing the role of today’s architecture. In particular the colour, historically very important language exploited over the building facades, seems to prefer during the daytime a grey tones, but mainly changing overnight. The screen city seems to give to the life a second day, more fascinating than the sunlighted one. The language change his way of communication in a new Babel. Many languages aren’t able to express what is essential for the life. A collective hypnosis seems to have captured the minds of all generations. They are satisfied by a life spent to use playtools like smartphones till the screens disseminated along the city. But, on the other hand, few peoples are governing the world using the economic power. They use a lot of colours to distract the attention of this mass of playing people.
