Architecture in monochrome: The complex allure of black buildings
Black monochrome architecture has a long history and a global reach. Its boundless variety of expression is testament to black's power to convey message and to perform function.

Black has lured architects for practical, historical, metaphorical, or formal reasons — all of which ask serious questions of us as users and viewers of their buildings.
