Black Architecture (ed. Sibylle Kramer; Braun Publishing, 2016) is an impressive book about black buildings and their experiential characteristics.
The laws of physics define black as the (almost) complete absorption of all frequencies of light. This impression of color in the absence of visual stimuli holds a special place in many cultures, both past and present. All around the world, the unique color code #000000 is met with great respect.
Countless contemporary architects and designers have earned equal respect through their intense engagement with the color black. Accompanied by essays, the projects presented in this volume showcase the huge variety of approaches by the contemporary building culture to this fascinating physical and cultural phenomenon.
