Color palette alphabet

Bruno Taut (1880 – 1938) was a renowned German architect, urban planner and author. He was active during the Weimar period and is known for his theoretical works as well as his building designs. He interpreted color into deeper meanings in his buildings. Early on, as Taut flirted with an artist’s career, he used colors to create elements of psychological, decorative and spatial design. For Taut, color played a dual role: it was a ‘symbol of the new happiness’ but also spread a folksy good cheer throughout the house, inside and out. The color palette in his book ‘Ein Wohnhaus’ (1929) forms an alphabet.
