The climate of Mediterranean countries is characterized by its complexity. Rapidly changing conditions mean that both cold and heat can be a problem. In architectural practice the design solutions that must be applied in buildings are complex.
Solutions for summer comfort in Mediterranean areas also reflect this complexity. The causes of summer discomfort will be described and some examples of solutions against these will be showed and analized.
