For more than ten years, the celebrated artist Per Arnoldi of Copenhagen
has been working together with the world-famous London architect Norman Foster.
Arnoldi's contributions range from posters of Foster's buildings to targeted
chromatic interventions in interior spaces to the complex total "chromatic
concept" for a massive new structure. Color is Communication provides
systematic and detailed documentation of their entire collaborative spectrum.
This ﬁrst publication on their collaborative projects includes the Commerzbank
in Frankfurt, the Reichstag in Berlin, the Imperial College in London, the HM
Treasury in London, the National Police Monument in London, the Arag Tower in D
sseldorf, the World Port Center in Rotterdam, and Decaux's headquarters in
London. The book contains new photographs of Foster's exterior and interior
spaces that beautifully capture the speciﬁc qualities of the interplay between
space and color.
