The subject of the present research is the analysis and evaluation of effects in way of separation, companionship, and bordering the private, semi- private and public areas within the collective settlements with focus on way of creating a livable setting. The field studies signify that the primary principles and fundamentals of architecture and urban setting landscape are employed at low level in most of the collective settlements and townships in Iran and the higher requirements such as sense of place, self-esteem, self-actualization, and or cognitive and aesthetic requirements have been ignored in design of them. The present investigation has proposed the educational strategies and some criteria for design of setting in collective settlements with respect to environmental psychology basic concepts like privacy, personal setting, territory, traffic, and paying attention to individuals’ needs, wishes, and culture to achieve the preparation for more efficient and livable settings and areas. The above-mentioned study has been carried out by means of survey- descriptive research aiming at identifying cause-and-effect relation in order to describe the attributes of statistical population and way of nature under the existing conditions and the relationship between the events at small scale by adaption of cross- sectional and longitudinal techniques. Then, the hypotheses were explored by means of relational- correlation method along with abstract paradigms as environmental data through recognizing the public attitude toward the environmental by non- interventionist approach and the field studies were conducted through qualitative and quantitative methods. Eventually, this trend led to analysis and recording the results and proposing a strategy for conversion of design principles into educational trend of environmental design in this regard.
