Colours in Architecture are necessary to embellish, highlight, illuminate and separate spaces and also to communicate conscious and subconscious stimuli. Colour can be associated with symbolism; colours take on different meanings according to the artistic, historical or cultural period; colours change when facing light; among many other characteristics. In this workshop, Dr Larissa talked about the relationship between colour and architecture.
