The depth of the void concept has extended the range of its effects from philosophy to various sciences and even types of art. In architecture, due to the importance of the spacing effect and architectural components on behavior, void finds a different role that seems to be less addressed in contemporary architecture. If void, regardless of its hidden meaning, is referred to as "empty space," all spaces in architecture are empty; otherwise, they were considered mass. The present study analyzes the physical and semantic characteristics of the void and their impact on social relations. What effect do void physical and semantic components have on the social elements of space? It is the main question. Achieving a comprehensive model in using void's features to improve spatial qualities and increasing or controlling social interactions in different places was considered the research goal. Therefore, "the effect of void's physical-semantic features" as an independent variable and "social interactions" was introduced as a dependent variable. The research method is a mixed quantitative-qualitative. Initial processing in five and three different uses was conducted, respectively. The research used Questionnaires, detailed observation, and interviews on-site for data collection. The obtained information was analyzed by Smart PLS software. The analysis results show that the void's physical and semantic components, in the form of spatial cohesion, have increased social tendencies among individuals in places with informal use.
