dc.description.abstract When man creates the building not only does he create an internal space for himself, but changes and reshapes his landscape. Which he shares with his fellow lack of sensitivity and planning in design gives way to lost and alien spaces. The meaningful relationship between these buildings and its surrounds holds the context as a coherent whole. When these spaces are imbued with values and meanings of that society, it invokes emotions in the individual. This type of space touches our heart. These spaces live on in our minds even after they cease to exist concretely. A feeling a nostalgic remembrance many linger on making us happy and contented, and an unconscious smile may plays upon our lips. We go back to them even in our dreams. This has become an enduring space. The study sets out to discover the principles that create enduring spaces.
