Description: Today, in the design of the built environment the number of examples of using light materials and coatings is increasing. There are several types of materials that have completely different technological principles of action as the basis of their luminous properties but produce the same visual effect. Accordingly, this circumstance requires the differentiation of light coatings, depending on their technological features, followed by their combination into a single group in the analysis of the compositional features of the interaction of such coatings with the built environment. In the process of research it was found that technological features of the interaction of light coatings with the built environment consist in detecting their luminous properties when using radiation of different ranges of the optical spectrum E" ultraviolet or visible. In this case, in both instances of interaction with the built environment, the following features of the visual composition are observed: increased contrast and color saturation; silhouette of composition elements; visual smoothing of gradual tone transitions; lack of influence of air perspective on color perception; visual perception of perspective due to physically moving objects further or with the help of the dimensional proportions of composition elements. Keywords: light coatings, technological features, compositional features, built environment.
