Description - Colours of Architecture by Andrew Moor

This timely new book is aimed at the professional market and covers an important new architectural development: colour has become big in contemporary building. Architectural icons have traditionally been monochrome, but colour has become increasingly important, and developing technologies have allowed large expanses of coloured glass to be used structurally. This beautiful new book from glass authority Andrew Moor profiles the emergence of colour in architecture, both internal and external, selecting the very best vibrantly colourful buildings from around the world, built and unbuilt. The book is divided into two main sections, Architecture and Art, within which various key design philosophies and techniques are explored, such as Screen Printed Enamels, Film, Lamination, and Sandblasting. Exponents of these trends from all over the world are represented, including architects Will Alsop (UK), Sauerbruch and Hutton (Germany), and Jamie Carpenter (USA) and artists Brian Clarke (UK), Warren Carther (Canada), and Jose Castrillo (Spain), with illustrations of their individual projects.
