Le Corbusier Quote on Drawing for Presentation

This Le Corbusier quote describes his simple rule for helping the viewer of a design drawing understand what the drawing is inherently saying.

“Here is the golden rule… With colour you accentuate, you classify, you disentangle. With black you get stuck in the mud and you are lost. Always say to yourself: Drawings must be easy to read. Colour will come to your rescue.”

Le Corbusier
