Since the beginning of human history, human benefit from architectural settings to increase their survival chance. Thanks to its evolutionary primacy and precedence for life, architectural settings have shaped human biology, mind, behaviour, ecology, and socio-culture. The architectural environments have been shaped by these issues reciprocally. Niche construction is the process by which an organism alters its familiar environment. The alterations can be a physical alteration to the organism's environment. Alternatively, it may include an organism actively moving from one habitat to another to experience a unique environment. This article's primary motivation is to draw attention to the influential reciprocal profit and relationships between architectural environments and their users and designers by emphasizing the significant role in human life, from genetics to culture. This paper's contribution is to discuss some linking mechanisms to understand the significant value of architecture for human cognitive evolution and adaptation.
