Color occupies a natural and intuitive part of the design process. If we are to avoid the possibility of future grey, non-chromatic towns and cities, we must re-orientate our concept of space–form relationships towards a deeper awareness of colored space and colored form as one totally integrated into the visual experience. At the same time, as a rule, it proves unsuccessful to attempt to conceal dull and monotonous architecture with strong colors. It is also pathetic when, in an era of system-building, we have to use color as a cue for people to find their way home.
