Aims: Technological development, organization of space based on functional approaches and modern visual modeling have led to the emergence of mold products in the urban landscape of contemporary Iran, dealing more with physical requirements and visual effects. In late architecture, however, there are manifestations of human themes in relation to the space which are due to the existence of a bond between architecture and literature. In order to re-establish such a bond, this article seeks to investigate "Hafez’s Lyrical Space" to reexamine the concept of space in architecture.

Methods: The space of Hafez’s poetry is interrelated with man’s experience so in its relation with human experience and phenomenological studies. This study is informed by Phenomenological methodology. In order to recognize human experiences germane to Hafez’s lyrical space and to understand the concept of space, this article has investigated human experiences of a number of professionals in different fields.

Findings: The findings suggest that the concept of "Hafez’s Lyrical space" is constantly intertwined with human embodiment (body- mind) in his poetry, so human being becomes meaningfulness in lyrical space and vice versa. This space appears with the presence of human embodiment in a multifaceted dialectical relationship, i.e. visible and invisible layers, separate from a concentration and centralization on human or other phenomena.

Conclusion: Based on the concepts extracted from mediating, multidimensional and embodied lyrical spaces of Hafez's poetry which were considered with unique connection with human, the process of formation of lyrical spaces embodied in contemporary urban landscape and architecture emerged.
