Epochenfächer – by Haus der Farben

“The Swiss “Haus der Farbe” developed, in 2005, the color atlas “Farbraum Stadt” of Zurich (color-space-city), a research project supported by the Minister of Regional Planning. It is a comprehensive compendium and analysis of urban color spaces of Zurich. The work consists of a map with 96 color portraits, the book, and the epoch color-guide (Epochenfächer). It guides the reader through the color history of Zurich from 1900 to 2010 – it is the color portrait of Zurich. Shouldn’t every city have a color-guide?”
