We LIKE This Colorful Series


By Jill Pilaroscia

Being architectural colorists, architecture and color are two words that we think go hand in hand.

Whether it is bright accents that create spatial definition or neutral shades that lend the illusion of larger spaces, color is more than just an aesthetic device.

The I LIKE promo video from Canal180 appears on Vimeo.

When used correctly, color can be a highly effective architectural tool with the ability to transform space and create dynamic environments.

Color is a lens through which the spatial experience of a place is a malleable thing.

Episodes of Exploration

Now, LIKEarchitects, a Portuguese-based atelier, has teamed with Canal180, the world's first open-source TV channel, to bring you the series I Like Color, which explores this exact relationship.

Each episode features architectural projects and installations from around the world.

Each of the series' 11 episodes features architectural projects and installations from around the world that use color in combination with spatial interventions to shape, engage, and transport users into a world of the architect's making.

In episodes curated by Diogo Aguiar and Teresa Otto, featured projects illustrate how color can be used to define and program spaces.

Color comes alive as it interacts with light, shadow and other site-specific conditions.

Color comes alive as it interacts with site-specific conditions, such as light and shadow. Simple spaces become dynamic three-dimensional environments where color is the atmospheric driver.
