DTB210 Colour and Lighting

This unit develops a broad and coherent understanding of colour, its psychology and complexity, and interdependence with light in the context of design theory and application in practice. As such, it introduces you to the attributes, utilisation and the sensory implications of colour and light and their interdependencies within the built environment. It develops broad knowledge and the skills to apply theoretical concepts relative to colour and light in the creation of spatial design environments. It focuses on the human response to colour and light through an understanding of the histories, theories, and methods of application relevant to two and three-dimensional environments.
