This seminar has several objectives.

One is to offer each student greater mastery over the creation/selection/juxtaposition of color, allowing the creator to experiment more knowingly and intentionally.

One is to examine a broad range of examples of color in architecture, cutting across time and across cultural histories, to examine its sensory and cultural impacts.

Students will be required to explore color through readings in color theory, through a series of paint and paper exercises, and through selection of an existing example of color in architecture for class presentation and as a written paper.
