Abstract: Influence of occupation on built form can be traced with the adaption of the ancestor’s occupation by present generations and planning to take further with their upcoming generations with the organized built form environment. Rural housing emerged in the current scenario lack consideration of living needs and spaces required for better living. The Culture (occupation) is a product of cumulative and commonly shared experiences of group of people which is transmitted downwards through the generations and also as consisting of transmitted and created pattern of values, ideas and meaningful system that shape human (Michael, 1989). In the present scenario of Andhra Pradesh state, India where Agriculture is the major occupation, it is noted that the houses were evolved with the different styles and typologies based on their socio cultural and occupational influences. The paper aims its focus on analysing the influence of culture (occupation) on rural built form through Correlation statistical test in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The importance of agriculture can be determined by the adaption of agriculture as an occupation by the 70% of the population of the state which resides in rural areas and depends on agriculture for their livelihood. Hence, agriculture is chosen as the occupation to understand and analyse the influence of occupation on rural built form in selected case areas. The paper aims at proving the research hypothesis; there is a relation between occupation and built form and also derive occupational area requirements for better development
