During the whole time of human life span, those who survive longer will have a lifetime of various rich experiences. In order to meet the needs of those people’s life experiences, and to improve their environmental quality of life in more applicable and practical ways, it is essential to investigate the general problems of people’s daily life as well as their potential roles during their life span. This investigation is the main point of the study of environmental perception. Investigating interrelationships between people’s life span and surrounding built environment generates deeper understanding of limitation of people’s abilities, and encourages designers to produce more stimulating environmental design elements in order to create more legible environmental comprehension. The investigation of people’s attitudes and perceptions to understand the surrounding daily environment basically focuses on current conditions of living environment areas related to multidisciplinary issues in urban environment design. From this point, it is expanded to proceed to environmental perception tools and methods based on culturally-specific approaches, and to develop the framework of methodology and methods for further details of research investigation The methods of inquiry employed in this pilot study related to environmental perception principles, basically to seek how people perceive their surrounding environment where they experienced daily living. This includes methods of questionnaire, interview, document review, direct observation and behaviour observation. The conceptual framework methodology and methods is considered as the most critical stage in the process of environmental perception research. The result said that is mostly influenced by multidisciplinary aspects of people’s life experiences such as their social, cultural, economy, and lifestyle.
