In this project, we find the city color that reflects the historical and cultural traditions of Yangzhou and the natural color genes through the analysis of the daylight environment, natural environment, human environment and traditional architectural color in Yangzhou. We extracted the color of Yangzhou Gray Tones from the brick walls of ancient buildings in Yangzhou, the Bright moon White tints from the moonlight color and the Yangzhou City Flower Qiong flower, the Misty rain cyan tints from the natural environment of rain and fog in the south of the Yangtze River, the Warm autumn tones from the deep chestnut wood structure and hexagonal mosaic brick of traditional dwellings, and the Various shades of black from the black gray tile roof of traditional houses in Jiangnan area. With these five major colors tones, we have established the exclusive urban color system in Yangzhou, which is "Deep and elegance cyan gray color tone,dotted with warm autumn leaves colors ". We use typology method and urban space analysis method to draft the urban color planning strategy of different spatial levels and types for Yangzhou city. We mainly plan the spatial structure of urban color, and guide the spatial distribution and change of hue, saturation and value of urban color. In addition, we have developed building material guidelines that match the recommended colors in combination with the recommended color spectrum, so that the recommended color spectrum can be more effectively implemented. In this project, we are committed to explore the color gene of Yangzhou traditional culture and natural environment, and apply it to modern Yangzhou urban space, so as to create a color environment with local significance of Yangzhou, so as to achieve the goal of urban color planning of explaining Yangzhou charm and telling Yangzhou story with color language.
