The main goal of this research is to perceive the influence of light on the brightness of the architectural space through the different positions of the Sun and its varying intensity at different periods throughout the year. Through a historical review of architectural styles and architectural elements, the influence of daylight on the shaping of the architectural space is presented.

When we talk about architecture, we talk about light, first of all daylight. It is not just physical, its enabling perception of the exterior and the interior, it also provides energetic component to architecture, duality of matter and energy thus generating aesthetic sensation among users.
