CHROMOTECTURE - Architectural Photography Competition

March 11, 2013 /Photography News/ Homemade Dessert is excited to invite you once more to participate in their architectural photography competitions. This time they would like you to think about COLOR IN ARCHITECTURE.

Color has a tremendous influence on human emotions. As Picasso once said, colors, like features, follow the changes of emotions. Although, and while perception of color is somewhat subjective, there are some color effects that have a universal influence on people. These scientific principles of color are known as chromotherapy and have been used as a form of alternative medicine since Egyptian civilization.

Whether it is used as a conceptual trigger of a project or introduced in the middle of a process to reconfigure the perception of some material or space, the truth is that color has its particular psychological function, either perceptive or systematic.

the Homemade Dessert team is expecting to receive images of spaces where this dual ability of colors, in both rational and emotional outcomes, can be observed and felt.
