Stanley Tigerman's Illinois Regional Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped

His created a brilliantly coloured external and internal system for a library of blind. He noted that the legal definition of blindness does not necessarily imply total loss of vision. A partially sighted person can and often does perceive contrasts among colours. Tigerman's colours break with the expected levels of institutional austerity by using red for the exterior walls, bright yellow for the structural system and blue for ducting. An exterior wall is left in exposed concrete with openings and doors picked out in contrasting black.

best of luck...
