Conference in Sydney – 2003

This peer-reviewed conference paper explored a new method for environmental colour mapping that utilized digital technology. The paper was presented at the 37th Australian and New Zealand Architectural Science Association conference, 2003, and was my first conference presentation linked to my PhD research.

The paper explored similarities and differences among environmental colour mapping methodologies, initially explored by Jean-Philippe Lenclos and subsequently Tom Porter. One common approach involved manually collecting samples. The samples were then visually checked against colour notation systems such as Munsell or the NCS system. The new approach involved identifying colours using digital technology and high-count pixel photographs. The benefits of this new approach as well as some drawbacks are discussed in the paper.

Exploring environmental colour mapping using digital technology formed the first phase of my PhD research. Feedback from the conference presentation served to inform the next steps of my research.
