Abstract

Vivid colours in external views of the latest works of architecture are not commonplace. Le Corbusier introduced basic colours delicately, on small fragments. Architects inspired by his work most often select rather small fragments, marking with only a single colour that is clearly contrasted with the entire composition. The construction of massings with vivid colours is the domain of either young and bold or experienced architects who can convince decision-makers about their proposals and rationale. The author presents structures with elements of various colours, as well as single-colour structures that feature surprisingly striking colours, completed by outstanding contemporary architects.
