Colour sites guide

March 6, 1998

Researchers at Reading University have completed a series of projects into how colour and tone contrast in the built environment can help partially sighted people navigate better and identify features more easily.

The work has been collated into a guide, Colour, Contrast and Perception, which offers design tips for the internal built environment, and Colour and Contrast, a design guide for using colour and contrast in buildings.

The projects were led by Keith Bright and Geoff Cook of the university's research group for non-handicapping environments in collaboration with psychologist John Harris. The group is based at the department of construction management and engineering. *See research papers
