Abstract

This paper discusses the spatial identity theory for a smaller scope of the built environment - a building design. The research objective is to explore the concept of spatial identity theory within a building and interior setting through literature analysis and synthesis. A literature review is the primary methodology for this research paper, which considers extensive precedent studies associated to place identity, sense of place, place attachment, spatial experience - among others. The synthesis towards the end of this study may better comprehend the concept of spatial identity for a building design and interior environment.

Keywords: Spatial identity; building environment; sense of place; spatial experience
