Colors influence the perception of space more than we are aware of. They have a direct effect on our emotions and control our actions and interactions. Which social, psychological, and physiological processes take place in color perception and how can we designers use them? Based on scientific findings and using examples from social reality and architectural practice, the online lecture provides an insight into the multi-layered effect and effect of colors. The examples to be shown range from the design of hotels to shops and exhibitions.
