The WAN Colour in Architecture Award category is one of the most exciting and inspirational of all the award sectors.
Colour is an intrinsic component of architectural design. Not only does it influence the way in which we experience a structure, the intelligent use of colour also expresses the building’s identity with regard to location, typology and palette of materials. We passionately believe that the use of colour in the built environment will be increasingly important and integral to the way our cities evolve in the next few decades, especially with the benefit of new technology, both in surface coatings and LED façades.
We are looking to celebrate projects that harness the use of colour to dramatically transform a building or enhance the experience for its users and community.
Entering this award will significantly enhance your practice’s global profile, while being shortlisted or winning will confirm your firm’s position as an exemplar of creativity and originality.
If you have a project that uses colour which creates a more dynamic and communicative built environment, we would love to showcase your project.
