Color is an integral element of our world, not just in the natural environment but also in the man-made architectural environment. Color always played a role in the human evolutionary process. The environment and its colors are perceived, and the brain processes and judges what it perceives on an objective and subjective basis. Psychological influence, communication, information, and effects on the psyche are aspects of our perceptual judgment processes. Hence, the goals of color design in an architectural space are not relegated to decoration alone.
We’re living in a world full of color and even though we may not be as well-equipped to distinguish between all the subtle nuances we definitely enjoy playing to them and experimenting. Color is everywhere and without it, nothing would be the same, not even the buildings that you walk by every day. Colors help in developing perspective and understanding the nature of a building. Therapeutically, architecture and color go hand in hand. It is an important and needed approach to accept architecture, just for the fact that our daily lives are affected by all the places and their way of existence, it becomes necessary that the use of colors in appropriate and subtle ways is understood and implemented. It enhances the ability to intercept better with the surroundings and triggers our mood. Every space can be distinguished with its approach towards human and non-human interaction. Architecture plays an important role in promoting it, and color in architecture helps understand that interaction better.
