Couleurs de l’architecture

Colloque international, 31 janvier – 2 février 2002, château de Versailles
The Colours of Architecture. International symposium, 31 January – 2 February 2002, château de Versailles

This symposium was the first to evaluate our knowledge of materials and colours of roofs, facades and door and window surrounds of the palaces and cities of Europe, and of the various means of analysis and intervention, with the participation of architects, curators, historians, art historians and restorers. The event was held under the high patronage of the Department of Architecture and Heritage at the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, and was made possible thanks to the support of the European Union, as part of the “Culture 2000” programme.

See the complete programme of the symposium.

Nineteen of the twenty-four conference papers are available here in full text. The papers have been published between 2007 and 2010.
