SYN-TES: Human colour and light synthesis.: Towards a coherent field of knowledge
2010 (English)In: International Conference: Colour and Light in Architecture, Venice, 11–12 November 2010. Proceedings / [ed] Pietro Zennaro, Verona (Italy): Knemesi , 2010, 235-240 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The research project SYN-TES aims at contributing to a theoretical development transforming the field of colour and light into a coherent field of research. This includes the identification of important problems and the development of theoretical and methodological tools for the trans-disciplinary understanding necessary to solving them. Special emphasis is put on the spatial interaction of colour and light in architecture.
The work has the form of seminars /workshops where colour and light specialists from different academic disciplines (six Nordic universities) and companies (light sources, paint, colorimetric standards, window glass) examine different aspects of the problem complex. Sub-projects deal with the epistemology and concepts of colour and light, with methods for analysing colour and light in existing architectural spaces and with the relationship between energy efficiency and light quality.
