    By applying this relation between space and light to the architectonic world, we transform it into a relation between space used and lighting. The problem of light in architecture does not only concern the functional aspect of vision, but also the cognitive and symbolic aspect. Lights make architecture dynamic and transforms vision in time. These days the relation with natural lighting is searched especially within the ecological sensitivity stream aiming at energy savings and which promotes the design of buildings that maximise their use of daylight. Concerning the control of natural light in the museum world, some considerations must be made on existing regulations in order to highlight how compliance with them prevents undesired effects on the work on show and for the viewers. Despite the excitement around the subject of museographics developed in recent years, information on natural light in museums is very poor.
