Melinda Harlov-Csortán: “Talking Colours” by Tamás Fejérdy, Kőszeg: IASK, 2021

The review was written by Melinda Harlov-Csortán and was released on HERITO, 23 February 2023.

The role and significance of colors in architecture are well-known topics, often discussed in connection to the lost colors of ancient ruins or monuments. Tamás Fejérdy’s book analyzes the topic of coloring in the context of historic buildings still in use and speaks about the proper approaches of using colors today. Accordingly, this bilingual publication is a gap-filling work that targets architects, practitioners in the construction industry, owners of historic houses and all the interested wanderers of the villages and towns, who are keen on understanding and managing our valuable built surroundings.
