dc.description.abstract The incompatibility between architectural elements, buildings, and urban contexts arisen, has created an inability to identify contexts. Because the link of new buildings with existing buildings is lost. To get back that lost link should understand the existing buildings, elements and concepts. "The new arises from the old". Creative design has to flourish from existing. So that, they become stable and absorbed in the evolution of architecture. Creativity happens in the thinking process. With the use of the available materials in contemporary designs to be use in able to achieve creative design'. In this task, reuse is playing a major role. Reuse has become a trend in contemporary architecture. It has a wider sphere in the field of architecture. It varies within a large range from reuse of old discarded building element to reuse of whole building; reuse of the idea of attractive element in modern materials to reuse of planning concepts. Reuse in the sense briefly has two ideologies. They are direct reuse and indirect reuse. Direct reuse means reuse of physical things in architecture. Reuse of buildings, reuse of elements, reuse of materials and waste reuse falling in this category. Reuse of ideas and concepts falling in the category of indirect reuse. This is again can be categorized in to reuse of planning concepts, reuse of detailing ideas, relations with colours, textures and proportions etc ... this is the study area selected to explore in this study, where a research gap has been identified. Until the direct reuse and indirect reuse belongs to same origin, it is necessary to understand the link between them. Are they interdependence or independence, what is the most important in architecture. Until there i s no such attention focus in the field of study, more attention will be towards indirect reuse. How it affect the main parameters of architecture, spatial quality, especially to be deeply analyzed The final aims to identify clear link between direct reuse and indirect reuse, specially the link between indirect reuse and spatial quality, the main parameter of architecture.
