DiagonalFrontal approach Universal Design is the design of product buildings and spaces to be useable by all people to the greatest extent possible Principles Principle One Eguitable Use The design is useful and marketable to people with diverse abilities GUIDELINES Provide the same means of use for all users identical whenever possible and equivalent when not Avoid segregating or stigmatizing any users Provisions for privacy security and safety should be equal Make the design appealing to all users n n n Principle Two Flexibility The design accommodates a wide range of individual preferences and abilities GUIDELINES n Provide choice in methods of use a Accommodate right or left handed access and use a Facilitate the user s accuracy and precision n Provide adaptability to the user s pace Principle Three simple and intuitive Use of the design is easy to understand regardless of the user s experience knowledge language skills or current concentration level GUIDELINES n Eliminate unnecessary complexity n Be consistent with user expectations and intuitions n Accommodate a wide range of literacy and language skills a Arrange information consistent with its importance n Provide effective prompting and feedback during and after task completion Principle Four Perceptible Information The design communicates necessary information effectively to the user regardless of ambient conditions or the user s sensory abilities GUIDELINES n Use different modes pictorial verbal tactile for redundant presentation of essential information a Maximize legibility of essential information a Differentiate elements in ways that can be described ie make it easy to give instructions or directions a Provide compatibility with a variety of techniques or devices used by people with sensory limitations Principle Five Tolerance for Error The design minimizes hazards and the adverse consequences and unintended actions GUIDELINES n Arrange elements to minimize hazards and errors most used elements are accessible hazardous elements eliminated isolated or shielded n Provide warnings of hazards and errors a Provide fail safe features a Discourage unconscious action in tasks that require vigilance Principle Six Low Physical Effort The design can be used efficiently and comfortably and with a minimum of fatigue GUIDELINES n Allow user to maintain a neutral body position a Use reasonable operating forces a Minimize repetitive actions a Minimize sustained physical effort Principle Seven Size and space of approach and use Appropriate size and space is provided for approach reach manipulation and regardless of user s body size posture or mobility GUIDELINES n Provide a clear line of sight to important elements for any seated or standing user a Make reach to all

tasks Cradle to Cradle Is a concept as well as the title of a Manifesto written by McDonough in 2002 focused on lifecycle development In the cradle to cradle model all materials used in industrial or commercial processes such as metals fibers dyes etc are seen to fall into one of two categories technical or biological Technical nutrients are strictly limited to nontoxic nonharmful synthetic materials that have no negative effects on the natural environment These nutrients can be used in continuous cycles as the same product without losing their integrity or quality for example in this manner these materials can be used over and over again instead of being downcycled into lesser products ultimately becoming waste Biological nutrients are organic materials that once used can be thrown onto the ground on the garden in a river or any natural environment and decomposes into the soil providing food for small life forms without affecting the natural environment this is dependent on the ecology of the region for example organic material from one country or landmass may be harmful to the ecology of another country or landmass Global ConcernsEnvironmental Issues Greenhouse

light coor is a language Basic principles an concepts to be covered additive and subtractive color color systems Munsell Natural Color System RGB and CYK Pantone color harmonies color psychologies color effects color and light are often the first things we think of when we remember of envision space and place for many they are the most powerful elements in space defining meaning time and sense of space color affects visual properties of objects and has a psychological and behavioral impact it impacts what we believe and how we feel about out environment the color black looks heavier than white airplanes are usually painted white we have a perception that darker colors are heavier in actual weight color and light are virtually g Additive and Subtractive Color two ways that color is created Additive color we see color because of light white is the combination of all colored light Subtractive color refers to pigment color not light combination of all pigment color produces black in design application the differences in color production depends on media Additive Color pure white light is broken down into a color spectrum the sun is a source of pure white light colors go from red to violet ROY G BIV example combining red and blue colors of light make magenta the combination of all colored light creates white results of combining colors of light is quite different from combining colors of pigments Subtractive Color the pigment colors of subtractive color form the color wheel with which we are all familiar in subtractive color the color perceived is the color that is not absorbed it is reflected black surface absorbs all light white surface absorbs no light Basic Color Relationships all color systems are theoretical and abstract ways of understanding color and communicating color to others they are not all perceived the same way Historic Milestones in Color Theory Sir Isaac Newton 1642 1726 studies color invents the initial actual attribution of this is debated amongst science historians color wheel and defines the spectrum in the ROY G BIV ordering that we all have learned in elementary school Wolfgang Van Goethe 1749 1832 in 1810 Goethe writes Theories of Color in this work he theorizes that color is perceive and is systematic Michel Eugene Chevreul 1786 1889 in 1839 he write The LAw of Simultaneous Color Contrast interested in yarn dies he defines many color relationships as we understand them today Albert Henry Munsell 1853 1932 along with Freidrich Wilhelm Ostwald1863 1932 defines the Munsell Color system which proposed a theoretical color space that has become the foundation of most color theory education to date The BauuHaus 1919 1933 a German modernist school of design Designers such as Wassily Kandinsky Johannes tten Faber Birren and Josef Albers did studies in color as fundamental elements of design composition Their work is often the foundation for basic color design courses Color Space an abstract mathematical model describing the way colors can be represented as series of numbers typically as three or four variable or color components mathematically mapping variables against a certain reference results in an abstract color space every color has a definable quotfootprintquot or reference within the color space Color Systems Munsell Hue the specific color basic name and position on the spectrum Value the lightness or darkness of a color Chroma the intensity of the hue or its saturation more pigment will create a stronger color Gamut all of the color that can be described within a color system The Munsell System is perhaps the most common color system used today Establish in the late 19th century it has become a standard in design education simply because it is a standard does not mean that on should accept it as the only color system nor the true color system it is still a theory inside the Munsell color system every possible color can be described by three attributes of hue chroma and value imagine creating color with paint a pure hue is the pigmented pure paint to change value you add white or black paint to change chroma you add water lighter is referred to as a tint darker is referred to as a shade theMunsell system is best and typically represented as a spherical three dimensional object with latitudes of value longitudes of hue and depths of chroma or saturation this sphere describes the gamut every hue can be represented as a two dimensional scale notice how certain hues are visibly more or less intense at different points on these charts yellow mixed with black makes a green color so it is difficult to make yellow darker without changing the hue primary colors red yellow and blue all other colors are derived from these three color secondary colors orange green and purple when the primary colors are combined with each other tertiary colors red orange yellow orangebue green blue violet and red violet produced when primary and secondary colors are mixed Natural Color System Natural Color Sensations specifically defined versions of red yellow green blue black and white these are all called precepts these are colors that are not easily described as a function of another color Darkness the amount of black as a percentage of the total value Saturation the intensity of the hue or its chromaticity Hue the degree of difference a color has from adjacent natural color sensation black is listed as a natural color sensation but it also creates darkness the natural color system is based upon human color perception it establishes four chromatic colors derived from the observed six natural color precepts these four chromatic colors are arranged as quadrants on a circle and all other hues are described by their angle difference from there the circles quadrants are divided into 1 segments and each u like the Munsell system the Natural Color System can be envisioned as a sphere in NCS it is referred to as color space The NCS was established in the 1960 s by Ewald Hering a Swedish scientist also like the Munsell system the NCS shows intensity and value difference for every hue in the NCS case the graph is called quotcolor trianglequot what sets the system apart is the systematic notation system that allows for a logical and numerical description of a color This notation system allows for the designation of 2640 specific colors this system is a logical alternative to less intuitive systems used for the production of color such as RGB and CYMK based on additive and subtractive color RGB a color mixing system an notation based on color mixing of the primary colors of light or additive color red green and blue what you see on your screen in the computer industry RGB has become the de facto standard for both desktop applications and wed based systems RGB is an additive color space that is its three primary colors red green and blue combine additively to produce any desired colors Each ofthe component colors is represented by a number from O to 255 this representation lends itself to easy manipulation by computer systems in a hex notation It also means that 255x255x255 or 16777216 different colors may be represented in the RGB color space CMYK a color mixing system and notation that is based on the color mixing of the primary colors of pigment or subtractive color cyan magenta yellow and black this is what you see when you print which will be different from what you see on your screen CMYK by contrast is a subtractive color space It is the complement of the RGB color space cyan magenta and yellow are the compliments of red green and blue CMYK is called subtractive because its primary colors are subtracted from white light to produce the resulting color cyan absorbs red magenta absorbs green and yellow absorbs blue The fourth color black was added to the CYMK color space because in printing it gives a purer form of black than the other three colors these two color systemsRBG and CYMK are most commonly used on modern computer systems Screens using RBG and color printers using CYMK Because ofthe differences in the way color is perceivedadditive versus subtractive reproducing similar color between the two is difficult Designers resort to emulating one system or another depending on the media and using sophisticated conversion programs Pantone Proprietary system The Pantone system is a proprietary in that Pantone is a corporation that owns their method for producing specific colors first system to allow us to create pigmented metallic colors Base Pigments unlike the other color systems we have reviewed which may have 3 4 primary colors Pantone colors are created from 13 specific base pigments 15 if you include black and white Pantone has a limited number of colors of approximately 1114 colors and although they have emulation colors for RGB monitors these color are difficult to create without the 13 base pigments because of the specificity of these colors many corporations and government agencies define their trademark images by Pantone color number Also because there is no defined mathematical model an abstract color space does not exist in the same way as other color systems reviewed here Pantone also has the ability to create custom colors and special finishes such as metallics Color Harmonies Putting Color Together Adobe Kuler virtual Munsell Color Wheel monochromatic deals with various intensities and values of one color analogous variety of colors that are adjacent to each other closer to the center you will find less saturated colorspae colors Color Harmonies color harmonies are understood relationships between colors the physical scientific definitions of color harmonies is more elusive than one would expect they are based on the observation of human perception more than mathematical explanation that being said color harmonies are typically described as relationships of color around the color wheel the vocabulary used for these colors has been dominated by the Munsell systems but it is important to remember that any color systems color wheel can be used men and women see color differently men react stronger to yellow based colors and women react stronger to blue based colors yellow and blue plaid shirt makes pants look more green than brown if the shirt was more blue the pants would appear more orange monochromatic one color but any value of that color adjacentanalogous and two colors next to each other on the color wheel yellow and orange create serene and coomfortable designs often found in nature and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye complementary colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel offer the highest and best contrast purplegold triad any three colors that are equidistant on the color wheel makes a triangle tend to be vibrant even if you use pale or unsaturated versions of your hues teacher says this is the scheme that you usually see in nature sky is more ofa pale lavender than a blue ground is green trees are brown a shade of orange this creates a perfect triad purple green and orange split complementary take a single color and rather than using the complement you pick the color on either side has the same strong visual contrast as the complementary color scheme but has less tension variation of the complementary color scheme double split complementary 2 sets of complementary colors offers plenty of possibilities for variation Harmonic Color Schemes when color schemes have identifiable color harmonies they are considered harmonic many designers attempt to create harmonic compositions others may choose to force concepts of tension or excitement it is important for a designer to understand the role of value and saturation in color harmonies Tints and Shades Color Psychologies Color in a Cultural Context colors have associative meanings both symbolic and spiritual how color meaning is interpreted is typically based on ones personal and cultural background some color psychological reactions are considered biological but that is a point that is continually up for debate color can be used to influence an audience Red longest wavelength produces a sensation of heat can be ass powerful as red or as gentle as pink Physical Attributes quickens heart rate attention grabbing stop lights and stop signs stimulates

cultural borders Mardi Gras colors Color Effects color change as they are perceived in different situations two identical colors from a single spatial position in a color system will appear differently depending on their context Simultaneous Contrasts warm colors advance cool colors recede warm colors include red orange and yellow cool colors include green blue and violet it is important to remember that the warm cool relationship is a comparative one and there is debate on exactly where to draw the line on the color wheel between warm and cool Bezold Effect colors appear differently based on the color to which it is adjacent this effect is named after is discoverer Wilhelm Von Bezhold Optical Mixing different colors are spaced so closely that the eye perceives them a different color a combination ofthe two the painting method known as pointillism is an example of an artist manipulating this effect Metamerism very important the change in color due to changes in the light in which it is viewed either ambient or general This is called illuminate metameric failure hence a color may be the same in one situation but different in another these two colors are referred to as metameric parts in some circumstances they have the same apparent color even if their specific spectral makeup location in color space is different Vision and Lighting quotvision is dependent on lightquot lightingcritical to understanding exteriorinterior spaces adequate amounts are required to see extent of spaces in order to feel safe and to perform activities lighting one ofthe most important aspects of successful interior environment good lighting supports convenience comfort and favorable emotional reaction good lighting is lighting that isn t noticeable softer lighting will cause you to eat 175 calories less during a meal better lighting makes you consider the food that you re eating to be of better quality and to taste better color and light create mood and add emotional content when you are reading Daylight what the human eye was designed to see in u it still offers the best light because it is the purest whitest light electric light tries to compare to daylight daylight and electric light can be used to effectively reinforce the concept of a space offering definition of architectural features and emphasis Good lighting can achieve the following effects set a desired mood or atmosphere direct or concentrate our attention control shading or shadow emphasize or modify spacialperception the goals of lighting are to promote good visibility and to generate qualities of atmosphere the aesthetic and emotional impressions that convey a mood appropriate to the space in question Illuminating Engineering Society IES see light levels page 336 u for

candle will deliver on 1 square foot surface 1 foot away the light reflected back is referred to as footlamberts use candles when talking about artificial light because they have been around since the beginning of time Th proportion of incident light reflected from a surface expressed in percentages is called reflectance angle of incidence angle of reflection look in book for picture 3 types of lighting uses in response to needs ambient lighting general lighting is needed for overall illumination ofa space the level of illumination may be fairly low depending on the purpose ofthe space and the activities this has nothing to do with the quality of light task lighting light that is provided for specific types of work or activities such as reading sewing cooing or surgery the level oftask lighting will depend upon the age and ability of the user as well as the level of detail usually controlled locally whereas ambient lighting is often controlled by a switch that operates several sources at once accent lighting special lighting used to focus attention on a particular area or to create emphasis for artwork merchandise on a building etc in some cases you can use task lighting and accent lighting to create ambient lighting Electric Light Sources quality of light color of light lamps or bulbs types and typical applications economic aspects of each u 3 basic types incandescent fluorescent high intensity dischargeHD the total light output from the electric source is expressed in lumens lumen a unit of light flow generated by the light of one standard candle The LAMP is the source of light LAMP is the technical name given to what we generally call the quotbulbquot you want to look for 130 volt LAMPS this is because power is not continuous it comes in surges Lumens is what you are looking for to see if the LAMP will produce enough light for what you are trying to do Incandescent Most common type seen in residential applications invented by Thomas Edison they are the oldest and most familiar of sources they are referred to as A type lamps these lights fail because most of the electricity going into the LAMP produces more heat than light over 90 heat and less than 5 light Quality near the light source shadows good for describing 3 D emphasizes texture creates color and sparkle Color beneficial to our skin Economics uses greatest amount of energy for the amount of light it produces requires more air conditioning because it produces so much heat short lamp life re lamping adds to cost factor takes the equivalent of 714 pounds of coal to power a 100 watt incandescent lamp for 24 hours LED lighting is up and coming only 85 pounds of coal to power an 12 watt LED light which puts out the same amount of light as a 100 watt incandescent lamp standards exist with A lamps so we can expect the same quality all the time Fluorescent most common seen in commercial spaces developed in the 1930s about 13 less to use than incandescent highly economical problem is that fluorescent are like a strobe light your eye sees constant light but your brain is seeing what looks like old films because the light is being pulsed at you huge problem if fluorescent lights break because they contain mercury Quality mainly shadowless and diffused flat light space may feel monotonous when use alone Color available in daylight and full spectrum sources most commonly produces cool light Economics greater light output for energy used longer lamp life 10000 to 20000 hours HID associated with most outdoor applications combines some of the advantages of incandescent and fluorescent light Quality point or near point source casts shadows and creates highlights Color high pressure sodiumyelowish color poor color rendition mercury vaporbuish green color poor color rendition metal halidecoo white light that is very desirable in a range of situations Economics first cost is high for lamps and fixtures high light output for energy used slightly better than fluorescent high wattage and large beam spread make it possible to use fewer fixtures long lamp life great for high ceilings and hard to reach applications lasts about 12000 to 24000 hours Fiber Optics I Quality produces cold light ideal for areas needing to remain cool Color depends on color source of light Economics many points of light from a single light source safe for wet areas no

intricate patterns in wood reading barcodes surgery exterior lighting Cold Cathode answer to neon in neon all the colors that we use are made by different gasses in tubes to produce different color similar in terms of effect but different because we have light moving through whatever color tube that we want to use does not require as much energy as neon used for advertising Biological Needs of

standards for universal design Grabbars used in showers or handicapped restrooms to help facilitate activities for those with disabilities or aging Aging in place the ability to live in one39s own home and community safely independently and comfortably regardless of age income or ability level Ron Mace creator of the term universal design was an articulate architect and determined advocate who influenced international thinking about design Nonrenewable resources is a natural resource which cannot be reproduced grown generated or used on a scale which can sustain its consumption rate once depleted there is no more available for future needs Linear approach traditional design approach the conventional model of the building life cycle Cradletograve products are created used and discarded Cyclical approach is the same as cradle to cradle products are reused either recycled if a technical nutrient or compostedconsumed as a biological nutrient Active solar technologies are employed to convert solar energy into another more useful form of energy This would normally be a conversion to heat or electrical energy Passive solar windows walls and floors are made to collect store and distribute solar energy in the form of heat in the winter and reject solar heat in the summer Payback the money you save in the long run with sustainable design Tradeoff a perceived trade off for less desirable materials and luxury for green design Adaptive use refers to the process of reusing an old site or building for a purpose other than which it was built or designed for Cultural resource

space planning analyzing needs codes and regulations communication drawing verbal collaboration anything that is an art based discipline will use the same elements and principles of design elements

red violetoften referred to as magenta all the colors are equidistant on the color wheel Value the lightness or darkness of a color also known as tone typically shown on a ten point chart starts at whiteno color and goes to black Principles Balance balance in design is similar to balance in physics a large shape close to a center can be balanced by a small shape close to an edge a large light toned shape will be balanced by a small dark toned shape the darker the shape the heavier it appears to be this idea has been scientifically proven Gradation gradation of size and direction produce linear perspective gradation of color from warm to cool and tone from dark to light produce aerial perspective gradation can add interest and movement to a shape gradation from dark to light will cause the eye to move along a shape in paintings objects closer to you are sharper and the ones further away are fuzzy we want to create gradation gradation can help create depth Repetition repetition with variation is interesting without variation repetition can become monotonous quotunity with varietyquot when we vary sensations it remains Contrast contrast is the juxtaposition of opposing elements opposite colors on a color wheel redgreen purpleyellow blueorange contrast in tone or value contrast in direction horizontalvertical the major contrast in painting should be located at the center of interest too much contrast scattered throughout a painting can destroy unity and make a work difficult to look at Unless a feeling of chaos and confusion are what you are seeking it is a good idea to carefully consider where to place your areas of maximum contrast Harmony the visually satisfying effect of combining similar related elements adjacent colors on a color wheel similar shapes Dominance gives a picture or painting interest counteracting confusion or monotony dominance can be applied to one or more of the elements to give emphasis Unity unity is relating the design elements to the idea of being expressed in a painting reinforces the principle of unity a painting with an active aggressive subject would work better with a dominant oblique direction course rough texture angular lines whereas a quiet passive subject would benefit from horizontal lines soft texture and less tonal contrast important for communication avoid making a vertical visual link it is awkward placement and size relationships are vitally important for a comfortable visual link to be made Understanding The Elements and Principles of Design organization of space responds to functional reguirements can you see unity can you see harmony can you see dominance design concept is the central idea of creating a total cohesive expression expression is integral to the meaning ofthe space the visual appearance is not mere application and guesswork using the same elements and principles can create different effects or expressions The elements of design are individual parts that communicate emotional and intellectual meaning Defining Spaces Ordering Systems the ordering ofarrangement of space can connect adjacent spaces method of organization supporting desired relationship
