The Whiteness of Green

The Whiteness of Green

The Convergence of Colors

(p.140) 8 The Whiteness of Green
Paradoxes of Green

Gareth Doherty

University of California Press

This chapter turns to the color white and its relationship with green. White is understood as the summation of all colors, rather than the absence of it. When designing with green, the charisma of the color needs to be guarded and well understood: the values need to be acknowledged, not just of green, but of its countless shades and hues. The chapter calls for a greater social component to design and for an awareness of color in the urban fabric, including not just green but other colors too. Ultimately, it aims to investigate the infrastructural and cultural milieu within which green landscape is embedded in the city-state of Bahrain. It shows that landscape, when perceived through color, reveals aspects of relationships previously hidden.

Keywords:   Bahrain, greenery, urban fabric, landscape, cultural milieu
