Abstract

Two theories exist relating to preferences for landscapes : 1)preferences are innate ; 2)preferences are determined by culture. The AA. evaluate relationships among preferences for landscapes and childhood landscapes. Results are based on a questionnaire sent out to 2000 people in Sweden, and on a qualitative study comprising 19 people. In conclusion, people prefer landscapes experienced during childhood, but seem to attach more easily to qualities that are suggested to have an innate significance.
