Red: Architecture in Monochrome

A visual exploration of red’s vivid role in global architecture over the centuries.

From the earliest structures to today’s contemporary creations, red has been one of the most traditional, and, at the same time, most cutting-edge, colours in the built world.

Through stunning photography with informative text, you can explore more than 150 of the most striking buildings in existence—from the deep-red and stainless steel of LA’s Petersen Automotive Museum to Moscow’s red-brick State Museum and beyond.

Visual pairings juxtapose striking works in a fresh, new approach to looking at and understanding architecture, including projects by some of the best architects of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
