Have you noticed that looking at a certain colour often alters your behavior and feelings? Environmental-behaviour research studies have brought us a new concept of changing the emotional reality around us through colour, which naturally get represented in design and architecture. The colour becomes a language, a visual cue, sending a certain message to people passing by.
Colour intervention may serve a means to transform the infrastructure of the city and draw attention to its certain areas, for aesthetical purposes as well as for practical ones. And more than that — it is a simple and uncostly way to get your idea through to the minds of people. Check out these outstanding examples of colour intervention created by both artists and architects.
