Power of Colour is the theme för this years student design competition
Over the years, art historians have presented magnificent books about the medieval church paintings in Sweden, in Mälardalen and Västergötland, in Småland and on Gotland, in Östergötland and elsewhere. The people, environments and symbols depicted have captured the attention of visitors for centuries. The medieval painters have left permanent marks on walls, ceilings and arches.
In Medieval Pigments, the reader may encounter these paintings, but under different signs. How have they been made? What does the colour consist of? What pigments were used? Anders G. Nord tells what the history of pigments reveals. Through many examples, the viewer will understand how the colour once appeared and what time has changed. What significance the church’s location had, when and how the church came into being, what pigments were then available. These are basic facts, but previously rarely or never addressed.
Nord describes how the paintings were built up, which dyes were used and where the pigments came from.
Anders G. Nord is an associate professor of chemistry and has for a large part of his professional life worked in cultural conservation, including at the Swedish Museum of Natural History and the National Heritage Board.

Dedicated to color
”Ett konkret och genomarbetat tävlingsbidrag, som med hjälp av färgkorrigering visar hur det går att förändra en byggnads status med färg.Hen har inspirerats av en kritiserad byggnad som fördömts att rivas pågrund av dess färgsättning.
De nya färgkombinationerna framhäver byggnadens unika karaktär och bibehåller dess beständighet. Detta projekt visar hur viktig en färgsättning är för arkitekturen i en tid då vi behöver återvinna och tillvarata. Inte riva och bygga nytt.”
A concrete and elaborate competition entry, which with the help of colour correction shows how it is possible to change the status of a building with colour.
Hen has been inspired by a criticized building that has been condemned to be demolished due to its colour scheme.
The new colour combinations emphasize the building’s unique character and maintain its durability. This project shows how important a colour scheme is for architecture at a time when we need to recycle and take care of the existing . Not demolish and build new.

Konstfack’s Perception Studio has for almost two decades given courses in light, colour, visual perception and spatial experience, and is unique in its kind. After a couple of years of reduced operations, we now want to celebrate a fresh start with a vernissage.
During Konstfack Research Week on January 27-31, students examine various aspects of light, color and visual perception, which are also related to several of the major issues facing humanity now. The result is presented with several lighting installations in the Perception Studio and adjacent studios.
This week we have fantastic colour and light installations to enjoy in Stockholm – light in the dark! The light installations are switched on at around 15.30 and light up well into the evening on 5-13 December.
Nobel Week Lights is a new way to celebrate this year’s Nobel Prize in Stockholm. Several of the lighting installations installed around the city are inspired by the Nobel laureates’ discoveries.
With dance and music, we have offered community for 250 years. We want to continue to do that – even during this dark period. So instead of shutting down when all activities have now stopped – we light up our house as a symbol of brighter times. A time when we can meet again in a dark salong filled with opera and ballet.
The lighting installation is created by Patrik Becker, Lighting, Sound and Video Manager and Hans Håkansson Lighting Master at the Royal Opera.
