Brian Hatton On Colour In Architecture


^Walls in Mies Van Der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion

Brian Hatton, talking at our third event 'Reflections and Refractions' at Aid & Abet in Cambridge, takes us on a historical and theoretical ride through time on the nature of the use of colour, pictorial depth, and mimesis in Architecture. From Giotto's Scrovegni chapel in Padua, through Rubens' tableaux, Adolf Loos' monumental Villa Karma interiors and Mies' Villa Tugendhat and Barcelona pavilion, he lays out the unique, complex and rather privileged position that colour has in relationship to architectural space and the construction of defined, 'tectonic' compositions.
