Interesting, especially the section on the color scheming for Gatwick airport. Shows the difficulty of designing color schemes for multi-client spaces.

Exclusive video: Are we getting the balance right? 

As a spin off from WAN’s highly successful Colour in Architecture award, four experts met in London to explore some of the issues highlighted by the entries.

As usual with this kind of discussion, WAN draws on a broad spectrum of stakeholders to get a rounded balance: Barry Hughes, Vice President at HOK; Artist Sophie Smallhorn; and Per Nimer, Global Design Manager of Akzo Nobel joined a table chaired by WAN’s Michael Hammond.
