Abstract: Architecture is much more complex today than it has been before. In order to keep pace with the growing complexities, the practice of professional design has to become more scientific and rational. We often come across the practice of imperfect design methods based on blind guess work, lousy intutions and thumbrules. As a result, buildings often fall prey to excessive energy consumptions, over and under utilization of scarce spaces, environmental and visual discomfort and loss of users stimulation and satisfaction. This ultimately results in perennial loss of the work efficiency, economy and aesthetics. 1.1.2 In order to evolve designs with better performance standards, it is essential to cross examine and obtain feed back data on completed building. But unfortunately, the assessment buildings in use has .received far less research efforts in comparison with the design process, where as these design feed back can always be an important resource to update design knowledge and criteria. 1.1.3 In Architedture today appraisal Is the missing link in the design process. Appraisal, programming and design are three linked acticvities. proper analysis of env Ireonment leads to better design solutions. It is, therefore, essential for the architect to conduct his own surveys Into how people use their environment, what they like and dislike about it and what kind of environment users would prefer..
