Abstract/Summary Building design and the selection of spatial features defining the built environment, such as the choice of colors and the type of lighting used, are not simply processes of functional or aesthetic nature, but are deeply related to the experience and perception of users. The paper analyses diverse approaches to the use of natural light and colour in two very different geographical areas, Scandinavia and the Mediterranean, trying to identify reasons that lead people to prefer specific and unique light conditions instead of others. The critical analysis focuses on examples of architectures where the theme of colour and light is refined to fit a given cultural context, highlighting specificities and differences.
