This paper aims to explain how the dynamic relationship came to be and how it should function in today's era and how black architecture theory has an essential significance during the design process.  It accomplishes this by first looking at the working of the human brain and how the nervous system organized with it, how our forefathers adopted this structure and function.  It reviewed literature that how modern culture affects that function.
