Le Corbusier Paint Colors

Post by DRN »

Has anyone played with these online color theme selectors derived from Le Corbusier's "color keyboards"?

https://www.lescouleurs.ch/en/the-colou ... keyboards/

Seeing, inside and out, Le Corbusier's 1927 twin house at the Weissenhof-Siedlung in Stuttgart last summer was an eye opener for me. The brilliant use of color animated the living spaces of the restored unit and seemed to set different "moods" for the spaces based on anticipated use.

Interestingly, one of the two units was set up as a museum of sorts for the entire site, and was painted out all white, gray, and black on its interior...I was disappointed. But upon entering the restored unit next door, the original color palette truly drew one into the unit and set the tone of domesticity.

I'll take my punishment for heresy now.

The Dollar is close to the Swiss Franc.
Those books are about $135.
Would love to have them.
