Color Block

A startling display of color. This Spanish building demands the attention of the passerby as it jumps out from its neutral surroundings. Although the use of Color Blocking is visible in modern day architecture,  the use of bold blocks of color is not new. Take the groundbreaking example of the work of Charles and Ray Eames below. The Eames House, also known as Case Study House No. 8, is a landmark of mid-20th century modern architecture. It was constructed in 1949 by husband-and-wife design pioneers Charles and Ray Eames to serve as their home and studio.

Similarly, these two examples express their modularity and create a dynamic visual punch. Of late, it’s a colorful modern expression being seen all the world around.
