Colour as Place Identity: A Case Study of Leicester

– What frameworks can help to define colour identity of place?

– Why are multiple perspectives important for defining the colour identity of place?

– How can we use the visual ethnographic approach to enhance the understanding of colour identity?

 

In order to answer these research questions, the PhD project comprises a practice-led case study inquiry of four representative places in the city of Leicester in the United Kingdom: Belgrave Road, Narborough Road, King Power Stadium, and Highcross. The study aims to combine dynamic aspects of the colourscape with semantic analysis to achieve a fuller understanding of the urban visual context.
