This chapter refers to some concepts such as origin and aesthetic knowledge and experience discussed in the previous chapters. But it focuses on the values of aesthetic knowledge of culture and climatic based form-space, principles of spatial organization, and lessons that we can glean. A look to the poor quality high-rise housing, and renewing traditional urban fabrics show to consider the responsible factors such as academic education and ignorant decision-making process.
