Clearly, technology has played and continues to play a key role in environmental approaches to colour/light. But does technology bring about a change in how designers operate, or does the design process remain essentially intact, using new tools for similar goals (e.g. to excite, shock or challenge traditional perspectives)? The book addresses these issues with the specific intention of selecting diverse authors whose perspectives on color and light in architecture have provided a rich contribution to the discourse on color/light as important aspects of architectural and urban design.

Abstract

This book is the result of research conducted within the Research Unit of University IUAV of Venice : “Colour and Light in Architecture”, which has been researching changes in approaches to color in architecture and/or landscape architecture through the writings and analyses of a variety of authors. The authors have been selected based on their specific interest in focusing on colour/light in architecture. The intent is to understand how these authors have contributed to the evolution of the topic within their own contemporary context. Starting from the most contemporary authors we has gone back in time to see if there may be similarities in approaches to the built environment project, or if, from the ‘colour and light’ point of view, there are noticeable shifts in direction over time. Which research has focused upon factors of continuity, and which has highlighted a rupture with the past? Clearly, technology has played and continues to play a key role in environmental approaches to colour/light. But does technology bring about a change in how designers operate, or does the design process remain essentially intact, using new tools for similar goals (e.g. to excite, shock or challenge traditional perspectives)? The book addresses these issues with the specific intention of selecting diverse authors whose perspectives on color and light in architecture have provided a rich contribution to the discourse on color/light as important aspects of architectural and urban design.
