David Hutchinson is an Associate Principal and lead designer in the architectural firm, Perkins Eastman. Along with architecture, David is an artist whose work emphasizes the synergies between language and visual presentation, particularly with respect to color. He has works in the permanent collection of the NY Public Library’s Spencer Collection, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and the Menil Collection. In this lecture he examines how the development of color theory and societal conditions culminated in two seemingly-opposed approaches to color and spatial applications in early modern architecture, as exampled by the works of Theo Van Doesburg and Le Corbusier.
