Factors affecting the visual perception of colour in rural architecture and landscape
Languages of publication
The main objective of this article is to systematize and present some factors affecting the visual perception of colour in space, which should always be taken into consideration by planners, architects, as well as investors – in both the analysis and designing of the project. Because of the far reach of the issue the main problems are covered only briefly, focusing more on those elements that are important for the design of the architectural colour in rural areas. Although the detailed study area was limited mainly to the South Polish villages, contemporary colours follow similar rules throughout Poland. Therefore, it seems that this presentation can be a starting point for further research on the impact of these factors on colour in architecture and establishing universal guidelines in this area.
