Technology

The beautiful urban color landscape should grow from the local cultural environment and natural environment. The sunlight, temperature, humidity, haze and other conditions within the climate environment will definitively impact the indigene’s color preference and significantly impact the urban color. That is called the climate develops the local color. The most relevant factors between climate environment and architectural color are daylight and temperature. To refine the urban color system from the natural environment, we should use objective and scientific technological means, especially the climate analysis and climate adaptive design method. This urban color technology mainly focuses on the temperature and light conditions in urban climate environment, and explores two core technologies: 1) Urban color recommended chromatographic calibration technology based on temperature conditions; 2) The method of guiding architectural color design by using light climate effect. We use the method of temperature environment analysis to the calibration and testing of the urban color spectrum system, to provide proofs for the selection of the urban color spectrum. We also used the color vision theory and daylight climate effect analysis to study the influence rule, hope to reveal the variation of urban color under different daylight climate conditions. We extracted climate-fitting urban color spectrum and proposed appropriate guidelines for architectural color design, by using color vision theory and daylight environmental analysis. This color design offered guidance and architectural color combination based on the analysis of sunlight radiation, except using the recommended color spectrum according to the urban space structure, the color design also includes using light and shade contrast of the colors based on the daylight features to characterize the key plots.
