Munsell System & Environmental Design Survey

The AIC Study Group on Environmental Colour Design (SG ECD) will be hosting a colloquium during the Friday afternoon AIC Study Group program on the theme “Munsell and Environmental Colour Design.”

The SG ECD has prepared a short survey on the Munsell System and ECD. 

The survey will take not more than 5 minutes to complete, and your answers will only be used for survey purposes. Your answers will be helpful in looking back at how the Munsell Color Order System has been used around the world to teach color and communicate color specifications

If you have any questions concerning the survey, please email us at:

Thank you very much for your time! We really appreciate your input!
