Abstract [en]

Colour and light have largely been considered as belonging to two different fields of knowledge, having disparate theoretical, terminological and methodological traditions. This creates a ground for misunderstandings and obstructs a fruitful interdisciplinary and interprofessional collaboration. A survey over international research literature from 2006 -2011 shows that there has been only little research on the spatial interaction between colour and light, but that the interest for this area has recently increased. The interdisciplinary Nordic research project SYN-TES: Human colour and light synthesis. Towards a coherent field of knowledge was carried out during 2010-11. Colour and light experts from Nordic universities and companies investigated different aspects of the spatial interaction between colour and light and its importance for human beings. This paper deals with the general learnings from the process. Specific results are presented in other papers at this conference.

Abstract [en]

This paper explores the relevance of three concepts for shape defining colour design, developed from camouflage theory. The visual distinction between colour patterns as defining either colour or shape allows colour design to interfere with shape defining patterns given by any specific light situation. The concepts counter-/co-shading, disruption and constructive shading are applied in descriptions and analysis of colour design effects, on both a selection of painted geometrical reliefs and existing buildings. Analysing colour design as interacting with shape defining patterns allows an explanation of how colour design affect the visibility of shape and may produce a more complex visual situation. Inconsistencies result in ambivalent visibility of shape, affecting the impression of the light situation and atmosphere. In conclusion the three developed concepts clearly contribute to a more precise understanding of colour design effects on the visibility of shape in an architectural context.

Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on the current function of academic writing for design education within Sweden. It argues that in its present form academic writing is used to explain the final result by accounting for the process, but it would be much more useful to designers if the form were modified to fit the purpose of justifying a design solution. Interpretations of the academic report as chronologically telling about the process have, in Swedish design education, resulted in muddled texts where the final results are absent or hidden in the lengthy description of the process. The academic report fulfils its function because it is a logical construction. Its form includes explication of the research-process because this process determines the reliability and/or validity of the new knowledge arrived at. An excellent design-process does not, however, guarantee excellent design: a design-solution is justified only by solving the problem. Adjusted to this purpose, academic writing could become a useful tool, helping students to grasp which explicit reasons and grounds may support their definition of the problem, outline how their design may be a solution to it, and also show where reasons and grounds may prove to be poor. Writing, in a modified academic form, can become a useful and integrated tool in design education, primarily if the intellectual skill developed through this writing is useful also for the practitioner.
