Identification of Colors for Building.
Building Research Inst., Inc., Washington, DC.
A demonstration of how colors may be specified for use by all those trades and professions involved in building science. This is of vital importance in furthering the use of color, not only in structures but in every other aspect of our daily usage. Free enterprise requires a color language in order to expand the use of color, and to allow for specified tolerances and variations which can be established on a scientific basis. Presented are the results of studies which suggest, not only to the building industry but to all those who use color, a simple, comprehensive method of color identification. Topics discussed include--(1) color identification based on color order, (2) problems of color identification, (3) color identification for the building industry, (4) color in architecture, (5) the problem of color communication, (6) merchandising through color, (7) a plea for color coordination, and (8) color in interior design.
