One of the most appealing trends to emerge in contemporary design is the use of bold colors and patterns inside and outside buildings. Nineteen of the most exciting examples from around the world are presented in detail in this book, which focuses on the dramatic effect of color when used in facades, interior surfaces, and elements. Projects from leading architects include Alsop Architects’ The Public in West Bromwich, Jean Nouvel’s Agbar Tower in Barcelona, and Richard Rogers’s Terminal 4 in Madrid.
