Colour has always played a large role in human society and in the spaces we live and interact. We are constantly absorbing environments and their colours, and our brains process these colours as messages, drawing conclusions and setting expectations, however objective or subjective. When colour is used in architecture and interior design, it means much more than a simple aesthetic choice.
In this context, the seminar aims to highlight the role that colour plays in architecture through a historical approach of the phenomenon of colour application, as well as assisting in the practical application of colour in architecture.
