dc.description.abstract Architecture in its mere perception is 'something' to do with mass and space, beyond and above that it is initially responsible for the genius of locus with the gentle discipline of the mass- space paradox. Yet present urban settings experience a destruction of spirit of place (namely anti spaces and lost spaces within the city) for we could hardly find this discipline within our cities. An analysis of this implication shows that the spaces between buildings (i.e. voids among solids) make a virtual impact on this regard. Spaces between buildings may either well thought, designed or vice verse. Historical and contemporary example trace evidences of both situations in terms Background of success and failure. Also in domestic context the design of cities/towns indicate these extremes and varying stages where the later ended up with paralyzed urban settings
