ABSTRACT
Being the existence of human’ life and activities; Space has been in close relationship between the gender and the society classes based on it. After the thoughts of feminism being introduced to the research on urban space in 1970s for the first time, gender difference in space environment is widely focused on and the research extends to the field of architecture. The establishment of “the Lab on the sexuality and space” indicates that there is more foucus on the subject. The present study is insufficient for an objective and systematic study about the gender difference and living space in special environment. Having “Wuhan Baubuting Block” and some ancient settlements in the southeast in Hubei as a case study, having carrying on the preceding literature research, exploring the theory behind the data, analyzing the transformation trend, in the perspective of humanism I suggest that eliminating the sexual difference in the living space is a way to improve the space arrangements. Key words: the sexual difference, the habitation, the space environment, humanism Résumé: Being the existence of human’ life and activities; Space has been in close relationship between the gender and the society classes based on it.
