Color in architecture and design

Arper e Guggenheim - Manolo De Giorgi

Our five-episode series “Color: a journey through art and design" continues with the fourth episode dedicated to “Color in architecture and design – part I”.

After the first three episodes developed together with the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and dedicated to the role of colors in art, Manolo De Giorgi – architect and design expert – will explain the approach to colors in the post-war period, with a specific focus on how red, orange, yellow and pink colors were applied.
