Abstract:

Colors are an element of both the natural and the man-made environments. They convey messages of all kinds and perform a wide variety of functions, informing, organizing, warning. But they also serve an aesthetic purpose, affecting the statement, effect, and acceptance of objects and spaces. While people's reactions to color vary widely, in design questions it is still possible to establish generally valid color concepts to match the expectations of the various groups of users. This book offers a guide based on a wide range of scientific findings and may be consulted as an authoritative reference by the architecture student and the professional alike. The three editors, Dr. B. Rodeck, Prof. G. Meerwein, and F. H. Mahnke have taught for many years at the Salzburger Seminare für Farbe und Umwelt der IACC.

Farben sind Bestandteil unserer Umwelt, der natürlichen ebenso wie der von Menschen gestalteten. Sie vermitteln Botschaften aller Art und erfüllen so unterschiedliche Funktionen: sie informieren, ordnen, warnen. Sie dienen aber auch der Erfüllung ästhetischer Motive, beeinflussen Aussage, Wirkung und Akzeptanz von Gegenständen und Räumen. So unterschiedlich Reaktionen auf Farben ausfallen, so lassen sich in Gestaltungsfragen doch allgemein gültige Farbkonzepte aufstellen, die den Erwartungen der verschiedenen Nutzergruppen entsprechen. Dieses Buch bietet einen Leitfaden, der auf vielfältigen wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen beruht und dem Architekturstudenten wie dem Fachmann als qualifizierte Beratungsbasis dient. Die drei Herausgeber, Dr. B. Rodeck, Prof. G. Meerwein und F. H. Mahnke, sind langjährige Dozenten an den Salzburger Seminaren für Farbe und Umwelt der IACC.
