Until the nineteenth century, space delineation was tied only to the architectural norm, and even now, space is considered as a fundamental area that provide a safe and shelter for its user. Architecture historically has evolved significantly, altering the way people perceive space. Anciently, world civilization used to pay great attention in portraying semiotic of spatial experience in their architectural practices. Back when reflecting moods in architecture was part of utilization of the function. Moreover, Civilization has revolutionized the means of spatial delineation due to new trends in technological evolution. Therefore, to comprehend this association, the studies can distinguish how the remaining physical remnants of advanced civilizations are reflecting the social and scientific development of an era. In our contemporary world, this trail of thinking is replaced by architecture that do not connect with the user’s psychology. Hence, politics in architecture has sustained to be that major womb for dystopian psychologic paranoia between user and space. The problem is that the architectural spatial composition has been subjected to obsolescent acts of war and deterioration, nullifying the presence of user’s psychology, and turning them into “paranoid spaces”, which become a major source of social and psychological disruption to its surrounding context. The aim of this paper is to produces a new spatial experience with which users can be injected, as a new approach in the amelioration to scarred spaces within paranoid cities. This Paper will use a scientific methodology that starts by investigating paranoid scarred places and infrastructure in a socio-political analysis of a case study, Starting by. Seeking for a design strategy that confronts the regeneration of a new spatial delineation ideology of amelioration in a new contemporary trend, that would polarize the sanctuary equating a new paradigm of architectural and transcendence to the lives of its habitants.
