The architectural styles and Methods it Appeared and that were varied and Multiply to bear a distinct and aesthetic identity, especially in the external form and predicates in internal structure of the building. The conditions surrounding the building had a great effect in the formulation of the architectural work represented in the internal composition of the spaces based on the prevailing ruling thought which was accompanied by the external configuration also strong and clear architecturally And Idiomatic, With a variety of time periods accompanied by a difference in cultural, social and intellectual values, there is a philosophy of architectural expression carried by that relationship between architectural and conceptual philosophical design which is used to understand the relationship between external configuration and internal configuration , Therefore, the research problem came with (the absence of a clear perception of the expressive relationship between the external configuration and the internal space and its effect on the recipient). Which called for studying the intellectual approaches to the relationship between the external configuration and the internal vacuum Which led to the search for a general framework for understanding the mechanisms of architectural expression at the philosophical and design level , and then formulate and test the virtual perceptions of the research and application by asking a questionnaire form, which depends on the theoretical framework drawn from a group of residents from within the field of architecture (Department of Architecture, University of Babylon), On a set of research samples. The research adopted qualitative measurement of results. The research found that the use of the principle of integration in architecture requires an expressive relationship between form and space, emphasizing this intellectual compatibility and achieving the visual pleasure of the recipient.

Keywords: External formation, internal space, architectural expression mechanisms, integration, contradiction.
