The third book in the Architecture in Detail series, Colors looks at ways in which leading
architects exploit the possibilities of the chromatic spectrum. The subtle way in which black
is applied to frame and organize space, the daring punctuation of red and orange, and the
ways in which natural materials are used and altered in unexpected ways all suggest not just
the attention of the designer, but the presence of a passion for subtle gestures, that taken
together, form powerful spatial images. Designed by Oscar Riera Ojeda and featuring the
exquisite photography of Paul Warchol, Colors chronicles recent work in residential, civic,
and commercial buildings. An introductory essay by James McCown places the subject of
architectural color within a historical perspective. Far from being frivolous and capricious,
color in nature and throughout human history has been of extreme importance. Preferences
for and feelings about color are highly personal and subjective, making their application in
architectural practice all the more fascinating. See the primary colors of red, blue, and
yellow—and many other hues—and how the varied palette informs, influences, and enlivens
building in our time.

acknowledgments & dedications

We are indebted to a large number of people whose help was
indispensable in the creation of this book. At Rockport Publishers,
our appreciation extends to Ken Fund and Winnie Prentiss for
their enormous and unconditional support, the trust they placed
in us, and the creative freedoms they allowed. Special thanks for
generously providing images and, in some cases, commentary at
various stages of the book’s development are due to Peter Bohlin,
Michael F. Conner, Marika Simms, and Sterling Alexander from
Bohlin Cywinski Jackson; Rosemary Suh from Peter L. Gluck and
Partners; Gary L. Shoemaker, principal of Gary Shoemaker
Architects PC; Adam Yarinsky and Kim Yao from Architecture
Research Office LLP. To Mark Pasnik, and Lisa Pascarelli, we
owe a substantial debt of gratitude for their willingness to be
enlisted at the most strenuous moments of editing and production.
Rodolfo Machado and Jorge Silvetti provided support without
which this project would never have occurred. To Paul Warchol,
who opened his extensive photography library to us, we cannot
sufficiently express the appreciation and respect we feel for his
work. During several trips to his studio and while sifting through
thousands and thousands of images in his archives, we depended
upon the kind assistance of Michele Convery, Bilyana Dimitrova,
Amy Barkow, Gabrielle Bendiner-Viani, Devon Banks, and Ursula
Warchol. And most of all, we are indebted to the creative forces
behind the details we have showcased—a list of architects and
designers too numerous to recount here. We thank each of them.

In loving memory of my parents,
John D. and Eugenia S. McCown.—JMc

To Peter and Sally Bohlin for their constant support.—ORO
