Uplifting environments online talk

Join us as we explore examples of architecture that are bold in colour and character, in the uplifting environments online talk. We will explore the theory and practice of architects and designers who use colour in different ways to inspire and empower.

Colour plays a crucial role in enhancing and enduring the understanding of architectural design and its historical context.   

The integration of colour can vary in chromatic flair and scale. It not only has aesthetic gains, but social benefits. The impact of using colour can be vast, both on a physiological and psychological level. It can transform spaces and influence how people inhabit these environments.    

This event is free but registration is essential for us to send ticket holders information about how to join the event. 

Uplifting environments – Inspired colour within architecture is programmed as part of The Association for Art History’s Art History Festival - a celebration of art, design and architecture taking place at museums, galleries and cultural organisations nationwide.
