Item description for Colours by Gerhard Mack...

'The nature of colour should change - no longer just a thin layer of change, but something that genuinely alters perception' - this stipulation of Rem Koolhaas is echoed by the world famous architects and designers Alessandro Mendini and Norman Foster. In this volume, they present between them a total of 90 colours - each covering half a page - accompanied by comments on the background, the significance and the applications of the colours. Studies of colours from each office form the basis of this book, and were previously only available in extravagant individual editions. With this comprehensive and consistent presentation of the varying approaches to colour, we have a compendium which shows the wide use of colour in today's technologically advanced architecture with its modern, post-modern and deconstructive orientation. The range of examples of the colours in practice includes load-bearing structures, facades, interior design, furnishing and the entire spectrum of product design.

Reviews - What do customers think about Colours?

This book should be called 60 colors because the Koolhaas section is a total joke. He baiscly has 30 pages of ex-employee bios and then a color swatch of their favorite color. What a waste of paper. No explanation of how they used the color or why they choose the color. Norman Foster and Alessandro Mendini do a better job, each includes about a paragraph about how they used/chose the color in their respective 30 colors.

My suggestion, buy it used and only pay 2/3 of the asking price.
