AIC 2018 Interim Meeting Lisbon

SG ECD Meeting

AIC Study Groups Meetings
Thursday, 27 September 2018
16:20 – 18:00

During the AIC 2018 Interim Meeting, the AIC Study Group on Environmental Colour Design (SG ECD) will organize a colloquium (SG ECD Meeting).

The focus of the SG ECD Colloquium will deal with the contemporary notion of environmental colour design, including the many different approaches to colour design with their own specific principles and rules, whereby colour appears in all its multiple facets and scales.

There are two SG ECD meetings in 2018

Munsell’s Legacy: Inspiring 21st Century Color Concepts

During the Munsell Centennial Symposium, the AIC Study Group on Environmental Colour Design (SG ECD) will organize a 90-minute colloquium on Friday, June 15, 2017.


Munsell and Environmental Colour Design

The SG ECD colloquium will focus on Munsell, environmental colour, and the language of fractals and patterns.

Benoit B. Mandelbrot introduced the concept of ‘fractal’ in his French book Les Objets Fractals: Forme, Hasard et Dimension (1975). Fractals are a way to understand complexity, not just in shapes, but in systems as well. The concept of fractal is especially helpful in allowing order to be perceived in apparent disorder. It suggests that variation and fluctuation on all scales are important, and related to each other. It allows the discovery of patterns and rules in the seemingly absolute chaos. Environmental colour is no exception: complex and irregular, it is fractal in nature. The fractal approach treats particular elements of urban composition at different scales as integral parts of a whole sharing a common idea.

Extending the premise outlined in Christopher Alexander’s book A Pattern Language: Towns, Buildings, Construction (1977), the SG ECD colloquium will also explore environmental colour as patterns that form a language. It will look back at how the language of environmental colour design has unfolded since its inception in the 1940s. Originally the concept of ‘environmental colour design’ encompassed processes of human interaction with surrounding natural factors (e.g., geographical, solar, climatic). More recently, the term implies ecological and sustainable design efforts. Environmental colour design is now playing a key role in creating the intended atmosphere in indoor and outdoor spaces. The aim is to improve a sense of well-being and comfort through the construction of aesthetically appealing and environmentally friendly urban and residential facilities and public infrastructures.

Over time, the goals, instrumentation and focus of colour research have changed to address the needs of contemporary environmental colour design. The SG ECD colloquium will show how the Munsell system influenced and supported the development of environmental color research. Examples of research employing the Munsell system will trace its impact over time while illustrating and discussing the ideas of fractals and patterns in environmental colour changes on all scales of urban space.

AIC Study Group on Environmental Color Design

The International Color Association will host a colloquium of the Study Group on Environmental Color Design following the ISCC Annual Meeting.

The AIC Study Group on Environmental Colour Design plays a key role in disseminating various approaches of professionals from different geographical and cultural regions. Focused around a specific interest in colour as a means of environmental design in interior and exterior space, the scope of research and study is broad and encompasses colour in the built and socio-cultural environments as well as the investigation of the effects of colour upon human emotion, cognition, and behaviour.

The SG ECD was consolidated in 1982 at the AIC Interim Meeting on Colour Dynamics held 8–10 June in Budapest. The activities and events of the SG ECD have opened up exchanges between experts working in diverse countries around the world. At present the SG ECD includes 210 members from 40 countries and the ECD mailing list has around 600 subscribers. The means of exchange include annual meetings at AIC congresses, a website (www.aic-colour.org/sgroups.htm), and publications as well as collaborations with other groups and organizations to stimulate research related to the members’ key interests. An SG ECD report is published in the AIC Annual Report (Newsletter). During the last meeting at AIC 2017 Congress in Jeju, Korea, the discussion addressed the question: How do we define ECD today with respect to colour, sustainability and wellbeing?

Our next meeting will take place at the AIC Interim Meeting, 25-29 September 2018, Lisbon, Portugal.
