The population of the world is exploding. The rising flood of urbanization is surging outward from the center and engulfing the surrounding countryside. There is destructive impact of our way of life (mostly urban) on the regional and global environment. By the industrialization developed, the city became a vast commercial enterprise; everything is for sale. The billboards, rural highways, power poles and wires, competing traffic and city signals, a convulsive mass of distracting color, form and motion, obscure the identity of individual signs. Cities of our times look like each other. .
How can we make the city work better, be more people-friendly and less harmful to the local and global environment by preserving its own historical and cultural identity? .
Urban space is not clean, abstract design; it is a complex human experience. It depends on an interaction with the observer and the information field: more specifically, a combination of visual, acoustical, thermal, and tactile information fields. However, in our times, city building is neglectful of human feeling; it is a cold, harsh enterprise devoid of the amenities for living. There is a big hunger for the open spaces for breathing.
In the late 20th century people tend to conceive of open space as an empty volume. Whereas, open space is the information field originating in the surrounding surfaces. Surfaces are building facades, the pavement, and local nodes such as trees and street furniture that can be described as the "ornament-. All these city elements and ornaments should be harmonized well for creating the city image. Spatial and connective qualities together determine the success of urban spaces.
Architecture is an extension of the human mind to the environment. We must be able to connect our buildings to the open spaces; this extends our consciousness to our immediate surroundings. If, on the other hand, we cannot connect to surrounding surfaces, then we find ourselves in an alien environment, and our most basic instincts drive us to leave it.
