Colour and placemaking
As a researcher, specialised himself in colour and its effect on relaxation, local colour and placemaking. This specialisation has now culminated in an external PhD trajectory at the University of Groningen in the faculty of Spatial Sciences.
Lambert is currently researching visitors’ and locals’ experience of changing architectural colours in an area in Lisbon undergoing tourism gentrification. The research aims to advance the debate on how to make neighbourhoods under pressure of tourism more sustainable by describing and critically discussing participatory planning and by putting colour at the heart of these processes. Hereby, Lambert aims to contribute to the current debate on a more manageable interlinked relationship between residents, policymakers and tourists in areas under pressure of tourism gentrification.
After obtaining his bachelor’s and master’s degree at Rietveld Academy Amsterdam and the University of Brighton respectively, he specialised himself in colour and its effect on relaxation in collaboration with Experimental Psychology at the RUG Groningen and Tu/Eindhoven. Next to that, he has specialised in local colour and placemaking, which led to presentations at Geography, Tourism and Colour research conferences. This specialisation has now culminated in an external PhD trajectory at the University of Groningen in the faculty of Spatial Sciences.
