Introduction: Given the amount of time spent by citizens’ presence in public spaces of the city, especially commercial buildings, the impact of these spaces on mental health is very important. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of ethical sustainable architecture indicators in human relationships with contemporaries and on community-centered mental health indicators, in the Bazaar as a well-known commercial space of contemporary cities.
Methods: The method of research was qualitative content analysis. Two sets of research indicators were used, including psychosocial health indicators and ethical sustainable architecture indicators, based on a relevant literature review. The Delphi method was used to validate the results. A questionnaire was designed in order to evaluate the correlation between two categories of indicators in the analytical unit. After assessing questionnaire’s validity and reliability, the sample size was determined based on the Cochran formula. Seventy questionnaires were completed at the Grand Bazaar of Tehran by people, who either regularly shopped or worked in that area. Furthermore, Spearman correlation method was used to measure the correlation between the two groups of indicators.
Results: Research results indicated that the public involvement indicator had the greatest impact on human interaction indicator, and vitality and flexibility indicator were mostly effective on the indicator of social happiness.
Conclusions: Based on research results, the correlation between more than 80% of indicators was either strong or moderate, which indicates the importance of public urban space design on community-based mental health of citizens.
