title The Impact of Colour on Urban Space Quality
source Motion, E-Motion and Urban Space [Proceedings of the 7th European Architectural Endoscopy Association Conference / ISBN-10: 3-00-019070-8 - ISBN-13: 978-3-00-019070-4], pp. 89-100
summary This paper examines selected aspects of the complex relationship between colour and built environment. Urban space, and the impact of applied colour schemes on the perceived quality of the urban space form core of interest. By studying the exterior colour schemes of existing built environments, it aims at making the attempt to bring more knowledge to urban design by pointing out the conditioning factors of the perceived quality of urban spaces through colour-related indicators. Understanding the conditioning factors of emotional impacts and responses is seen as a potential for improvement through conscious modifications of colour schemes. Such knowledge is essential also for any simulation if it is to be meaningful for studying or visualizing urban spaces. The paper offers first results of on-going mainly experimental research focused on professional colour communication and specification, colour preferences, social attitudes and responses to urban spaces in existing environments. The analyses aim at expanding the knowledge and thus possibilities and tools allowing positive influence on urban spaces and broader townscapes in the process of transformation of historic and more recent urban areas under current development pressures.
