Abstract
This paper is an invitation for international research cooperation in the field of color and architecture. It presents a thesis work starting from an experience shared by many architects and others who have at some time chosen facade colors: The house is not the color I thought it would be observations of painted timber and rendered facades showed consistent variation patterns for differences between the 'approximate perceived colors' and the inherent colors, involving both hue and nuance. These results were achieved in Swedish light conditions, nature and color traditions. Comparisons with similar surveys in other parts of the world could help the understanding of the found variation patterns and their causes.
