In the creation of architectural spaces that meet the dynamic, conflicting and complex multifaceted social and physical requirements, the design discipline has to be informed of how spaces are perceived, judged and evaluated by their users. For a long time, despite the multiplicity of place appraisal, there has been the seemingly objective evaluation of buildings by financial criteria, which has overwhelmingly driven the process. This approach strongly resembles the Cartesian view of a place as purely a geometrical space. In the late twentieth century, however, many philosophers, geographers and social psychologists have expanded the notion of space beyond its geometrical connotations.
