Saturated Space

London, United Kingdom

SaturatedSpace is a forum for the sharing, exploration, & celebration of colour in Architecture.

Depth in architecture is idolised as pure, abstract, white, difficult to grasp, serious & linguistic, while whatever is sensual, eloquent, colourful & essentially non‐linguistic is ridiculed as superficial, cosmetic, vulgar, indecent, & even pornographic. Colour, operating directly on the senses is demonised & feared, with its legitimacy -although never its power- in perpetual doubt. This cluster will begin the process of re‐evaluating the frame of this artificial contradiction, instigating a ceasefire & bringing the two sides together. At an epoch-making moment of material and technological fecundity, in which the potentials for polychromatic design and fabrication are multiplying in ways never witnessed before, Saturated Space will provide the space to let go and run into the rainbow, all the while injecting a hit of sensuality into Theory, and getting colours to speak up for themselves.
