In this classic study Faber Birren brings his expertise in color to the places we live; our homes, offices, factories, hospitals and schools. The colors used in these spaces have a profound effect on the people who inhabit them, and Faber Birren has spent many years researching the relationship. In this book he shares his findings and the practical applications toward healthier and more creative environments. In this newly revised edition, Mr Birren has added a chapter on the changing environment caused by the computer. He explores the new demands that today's technology puts on work and office spaces and shows the reader some helpful color and light solutions.
