|Abstract: ||The study investigated the perception and interpretations of components of architectural composition of selected
urban centres of Jos metropolis with the view to develop a planning strategy that will provide policy makers, architects and planners in emerging the necessary policies of urban planning and design. This concept was the focal problem the study sought to investigate scientifically. By dint of the simple random sampling, the study selected five neighbourhoods out of the existing eight namely; Anglo-Jos ward, Tudun Wada ward, Tafawa Balewa ward, Vander Puye ward and Zaria Crescent ward. From the five selected wards a total sample of 365 respondents was determined as the sample size for the investigation. Structure interview were employed in obtaining the required data of the perception and interpretations of components of architectural composition of
selected urban centres of Jos. The outcome of the investigations provides a basis for notional significances, perceptual awareness, and planning instruments that can sustain the improvement and development of infrastructure and resources of the built environments of Jos urban centres and perhaps Nigerian urban centres.|
