Abstract: “Style is knowing what you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn”-Gore Vidal the paper attempts to define the various mindscapes in Contemporary architecture and design. What is style? Who are the icons who patronized it? This paper aims to create a chronological journey using the visual medium to establish the position of color in design. Color has subtly played an essential role in defining style by the use of it; the absence of it; or simply by its inherent existence in the material usage. A journey through Contemporary Architecture and design highlights moments of hi-style, where icons created fashion statements, sometimes colorful, sometimes colorless, but nonetheless of impact. The following aims to inspire and initiate some creative cycles that endorse more Style Statements.
