  • 10. CONCLUSIONIt is not often that one takes the timeto fully analyze the colorful environmentaround them. In doing so, however,it becomes apparent that the colorpallete that an environment possesescan be manipulated into complimentaryartwork that will blend seamlessly intothe given environment. Using Kobayashi’sword map of colors is also quite helpfulas it allows one to convert the naturallyoccuring colors found in an environment intoa verbal description of that environment.In my case, the given environment was the SOHOneighborhood of New York City.By studying natural streetscapes, my eyes havebeen opened to new analytical techniques andstrategies. These techniques and strategies willsurely assist me in creating design elements thatintegrate nicely into any sort of naturally occuringenvironment.
