"Color in Architecture: Design Methods for Buildings, Interiors, and Urban Spaces addresses every aspect of color planning and application. Going far beyond a theory-based "textbook" approach to the subject matter, Linton draws on over 200 real-world examples from an international cast of professional colorists. Case studies of various design challenges and solutions are presented in an easy-to-understand workshop format. Each of these studies let you dig a little deeper, giving you significant insight into the practices of professional color designers and illustrating how to clarify the planning concepts, capitalize on the visual properties of color, and select from the range of industrial materials available for both interior and exterior building surfaces."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
