About this Event

‘Every perception of colour is an illusion, we do not see colours as they really are. In our perception they alter one another. ​ ’ ​ – Josef Albers

Would you like to have better knowledge of colour when specifying for your projects?

Join us at the MoA’s Special Workshop on ​Colour in the Built Environment ​ , sponsored by Kingspan Facade, Axalta and Shackerley at The Building Centre.

Lecturer: Tyen Masten of PHASE3

In this Special Workshop on Colour, Tyen Masten will be discussing the basics of colour theory and how his practice, PHASE3, integrates colour into their schemes and design process. Additionally in this workshop, you will develop a series of colour studies that will allow you to better understand Hue, Value and Chroma and the construction of colour pallets. This workshop aims to build up your knowledge and confidence in selecting and using colour for your projects.

About Tyen Masten and PHASE3 Tyen Masten is founding director of PHASE3 and has taught within the famed unit system of the Architectural Association (2005-17) and courses on colour theory. He established PHASE3 in 2012 to create a new kind of practice informing the future of the built environment. PHASE3 begin their design process by looking at graphics that inform the architectural space, moving back and forth between the two. This process is a chance to explore colour and motif through graphic expression whilst moving seamlessly between 2D and 3D. From curating a colour strategy for the New Cyprus Archaeological Museum as a complimentary background to a material approach, to exploring colour fields that activate a London flyover in Silvertown. Their current scheme, Stone Street is another example of how the practice is linking colour and material to develop a systematic approach to wayfinding
