Abstract

From the moment she was born, the architecture has never known breaks. Its history is longer than that of any other fine art. Walter Benjamin was convinced of this, and we could start from these two simple considerations to understand where the architecture is reaching today. We can try to do this by delimiting our attention to the aspects of color and light. The architecture, read according to the chromatic angle, is essentially a substrate useful only from the communication or the representation point of view. It is just a color support function with some significant. Communication and representation are such as to make each technology dependent from the configuring thought, but also vice versa.The form only produces shade effects, while technology is creating the hue, the tone and the saturation. Technology, including materials and their processing, may negate the effects produced by the form.
