The relationship between inside and outside is considered as the principal one in architecture as it is one of its most important relationships in architecture’s history. Human had tended, from the very creation of being, to withhold a part of the outside space in order to form a special inside space of the building.
This is done through containment as in making the cave as a refuge or through designation as in setting a space by using vertical or horizontal elements. This process is called “inside and outside” which might be the leading generated term of building construction. Human firstly and the architect secondly aim at finding, unceasingly, a relationship between interior and exterior spaces. And, as they do so; they manipulate the outer mass, inner space and mutual boundaries in-between through shaping them in a way yielding a relationship between both interior and exterior spaces; thus, to find similarity or dissimilarity between the shapes of the outer mass and the inner mass of the interior space. The present study attempts to study the similarity characteristic by studying its contrast as a characteristic of the relationship between interior and exterior to determine the differences between the architects' trends (Mies and Venturi) regarding to the relation of inside and outside. this relationship will be having a big role in determining the patterns of buildings, their trends, and intellectual and spatial affiliations.
In order to achieve the objectives of the research, in the practical side, three (3) single residential houses were chosen for each architect, and After applying difference variables to the selected sample, throughout the study a vision had been put into words expressed in that: the difference between inside and outside is what is known as the (In between), Which is the resultant of, basically, pro forma purposes, which are adapted to perform particular functions later as in Mies Architecture, or any strict functional purposes as in Venturi Architecture.
