Color | Perception | Space
This lecture focuses on the interdependence of spatial structure and color in interior architecture. Color between autonomy and purpose-limitation is an untapped design and communication element in architecture. The interaction of color, texture, light, and geometry largely determines the color effects and the readability of spatial relationships within interior spaces. Interpretations and translation processes of color in a spatial context allow the evolution of divergent interpretations of spaces.
Professor Schultz teaches in Architecture and Interior Architecture at the University of Applied Sciences in Darmstadt and is director of Liquid Architects, Frankfurt am Main, with Werner Schulz.
Her research, based on professional practice, addresses:
• Housing design process tools to consider
• Energy and resource efficient housing derived from contemporary trends and opportunities.
Professor Schultz teaches seminars and courses in architecture and interior architecture, with an emphasis on color. Schultz has teaching experience since 2000 and holds a chair since 2008 teaching in architectural media and design studios at all levels.
