The progression of the relationship between body and objects of our daily life, including the dress, can be identified in four stages. The naked body, dressing on the body, attachments to the body and extensions to the body. The dress can be recognized as an attachment. Four methods of attaching the dress to the body can be identified and three of them progresses from the interior; the body, to the exterior; the surroundings, in accordance with the process of experiencing a dress. Currently spaces in urban areas are a result of in between spaces that are a resultant of individually architected structures. While the climate of the equatorial region and the socio-economic arena of developing countries, by nature brings people, especially of the lower income classes, to the outer urban spaces that occurs incidentally without proper designing due to current practices of architecture and urban planning. Inspired by the aged relationship between the dress and architecture, the research considers the possibility of developing a theoretical framework by converting the relationship between body and dress-as-attachment to design better flowing, human centred urban spaces.
