dc.description.abstract "A Baby is too comfortable in his mother's womb ever too want to leave it, but on the contrary struggles widely to return as soon as he's born" Olivier Mark,1977:12 Architecture for children in contrast to that of an adult is subjected to major changes in terms of its structure; for understanding of external structure of space depends upon the mental capacity of the individual child. These two entities the child and his mental capacity and his sense of place in the environment are engaged in an everlasting interaction which leads towards the whole process of childhood. Therefore the degree of fulfillment of the spatial needs of the child depends upon the nature of his conception of space. In the interaction between the child and the environment the spatial needs of childhood is the foremost basic human need which should essentially be fulfilled. This complex correlation is identified as analyzed through a theoretical approach in this study.
