Editorial Reviews

ISCC Newsletter
Particularly interesting are projects in urban design and restoration. Designers and teachers may look to the book as a catalyst for thinking about color…Harold Linton has made a commendable contribution to the literature of color for architecture…He includes in more detail spatial elements, materials, light, viewpoint and the movement of the observer…Without a sense of tactile qualities of color development, too many current buildings are beginning to resemble bland computer modeling.
