dc.description.abstract "In reality, the individual I never creates anything; if man creates, it is as universal man, anonymous. and as manifestation of the principle, In ages of truer wisdom artist, scholars and thinkers did not dream of attaching their names to the works which took form through them"( Hurbert Benoit in " Supreme wisdom "' as quoted in " The world Zen" by Nancy Wilson Ross, p.284, Collins Clear - Type Press: London & Glasgow. 1962). As man is a communal being the need to converse, transmit the expressions and emotions is one of his innermost psychological needs. It can be fulfilled through talking in body expressions, behaviour or the built environment. However to be successful in the communication the idea / expression should be able to be grasped by the other person. Hence universal norms of communication should be developed, and thus creates the language - As a result the body language vocal language, language of architecture etc.have been developed throughout the history. In this context language of architecture is significant and should be rich in content as it concretises or deal with mans emotional attachment of the built environment. It has been researched by many scholars, that this emotional bond to the environment he lives in is a result of a collection of experiences of the physical environment, behavior within that environment and his attitudes and conceptions related to them. They termed this as happening or creating of places.
