    • ConclusionBy thoroughly examining the Cesar Chavez niehgborhood surrounding El Burrito Mer- cado and applying Shigenobu Kobayashi’s color theory I was able to take on a wholenew understanding of the areas atmosphere. e multiple businesses all tend to draw oncertain color schemes that create similar feelings. Pure, genuine, vivid, natural, friendly, chic, urbane, cultivated. A er extracting and organizing the colors found within the neighborhood I was able to come up with these words by applying Kobayashi’s wordimage theory. In order to further accentuate these feelings I wanted to further integrate the colors that create these feelings within the environment. By replacing the existing trash receptacles (that contained only one color) with new receptacles, designed with a color palette that encompasses all of these feelings, I feel I have accomplished my goal. rough the application of Kobayashi’s theory and using his techniques I was able to further examine and understand the atmosphere created by the colors in the CesarChavez neighborhood. I now nd myself applying Kobayashi’s theory and technique tomany di erent neighborhoods, especially my own. is is a valuable tool that I will be able to use for all kinds of environments in the future. ank you.
