Abstract: People’s im pression o f a building, a particular environm ent, or a w hole city, are, o f course, m ore than visual* Within the city lies m any connotations, mem ories, experiences, smell, hopes, crowds, places, buildings, various activities and the dram a o f life and death, affecting each person according to his particular predictions. From his environm ent each person construct his own m ental picture of the parts of the city in physical relationship to one another. Every w ork of Architecture affects the details and often the w hole of the collective im age. T he collective m ental picture - the im age of the city or area is largely form ed by m any work o f A rchitecture seen in a space. In fact the essence o f the urban environm ent lies In voids or spaces o f town and cities are treated with respect and lined with buildings o f different uses which contribute to the character and life o f the spaces, spaces further em phasized by the kind of A rchitecture which not only generates these voids but also nourishes them with adequate space, scale and visual qualities. Presum ably it is the quality o f architecture which defines the qualities of space enclosed by it. This is so because the identification of space literally depends upon the physical placem ent of architecturally conceived m asses in juxtaposition to each other with regard to utilitarian aspects.
