Abstract:
Contextual fit relationships have been examined in many different man-made environments. To date, however, investigation of contextual fit relationships between manmade structures and natural settings has been minimal. The present research examines contextual fit of residential structures to their forested settings. Structure color contrast to setting was found to be inversely related to both perceived fittingness and aesthetic appeal. A positive relationship between fittingness and aesthetic appeal was uncovered. The bearing that these findings can have on visual quality, preservation of forest setting sense of place, and quality of life, is discussed.
