Qualities of color
Architecture & Interiors
Champion for a more organic form in modern architecture and his interest of mixing old and new styles make Paolo Portoghesi, a speaker for the public. He explains it with his own words : “”I believe that modern architecture has lost the capacity to speak to the citizens, the common people. Architecture for architects is wrong, and it breaks the continuity of architectural history.
Architecture is not for architects – it’s for the public. ”
Post modern architects concern with color references in the history and to the environment took a new meaning. Color application in architecture especially by those who were using the organic approach by not covering the natural surfaces of the material to exhibit its own inherent qualities of color, indeed value the color and I think they were mindful of its power.
