Bernard Bühler, speaking through colors

Bernard Bühler,  speaking through colors

Distinguished by the use of colored elements on the facades of buildings, Bernard Bühler enters the social housing scene with great skill.
All his projects come to life through the colors and their created movements.

An important part of the architect’s projects is given by the use of modern and innovative materials, combined with the volume of the building structure.

The dialogue with the observer and the residents takes place through the colors used, which express a certain emotion and positivity. By staging a conversation between the play of colors and the movement that is given to the structure itself, created a continuous balance.

The building is one intended as a vibrant space, with terraces and colorful volumes arranged in a casual and playful way. Likewise with simplicity, exuberance, continuity and linearity. Each strengthens the other.
There is complementary harmony, a unity not by imitation but by correspondence, reinforced by the use of those who live with the structure itself.

A tangible demonstration of the Bernard Bühler work created is the Origami structure, in which the different materials, wood and plastic plates as well as their colors (the wood and the green of the plates) highlight the different facades and change according to the point of view of the observer. In this way the whole building appears to be in constant motion.

The structure that is designed, very simple in form and animated by colored elements such as screens or colored enameled blades, induces the geometries and colors to create a sort of clearly visible movement.

Cheap houses and green spaces, this should constitute a marginal urban landscape.
The logic of the building’s layout results from three issues: the relationship with the existing; the relationship with the public space and the quality of the heart of the island, where each element is defined.

The maximum expression of the architect’s work is certainly Fulton – A5 A1: two towers characterized by generous balconies overlooking the Seine.
The strong point are the balcony railings, made of dichroic glass, which means that depending on the orientation, the viewing angle will appear, a color ranging from blue to yellow, passing through green.

In his works, Bühler highlights a design that, in addition to taking social needs into account, demonstrates great skill in the use of materials and great modernity in combining the social and architectural fields.
