The Influence Of Identity On The Intellectual Pluralism Of References In Architecture

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 3, Pages 10-28

Contemporary proposals focused on studying the general framework of the qualitative mental effect on the concepts that generally affects in the design process, a need for studying the clear influence of one of concepts representing the ideation which it’s the concept of identity from a pluralistic perspective on an important single specialty in the detailed design framework so the importance of studying intellectual pluralism of reference in Architecture by identity are clarified. This research aims to define the general principles of the concept of ideation by reviewing a clarifying manner for representing it throw the identity to deduce the theoretical knowledge framework. Projecting towards studying the concept of the architectural reference and reviewing specialist knowledge on the research subject to conclude the of applicable knowledge framework of it so the main problem will be subjected on ambiguity of the knowledge visualization about the effect of inspection the theoretical indicators of the identity on multi mental of the reference in the architecture and its aim by give intensive details on its effects, then applying the theoretical framework on the applicable one then view and analyze and discuss the results and exploring the verifications patterns and propose the conclusions and the final recommendations. to suggest that the references in the architecture of intellectual assets for the product of the previous architectural affected by identity and cost indicators representing a plurality of intellectual..

Employing natural lighting systems technology in raising environmental efficiency in educational buildings

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 3, Pages 41-54

Studies were carried out to increase dependence on day lighting to illuminate the buildings because of their psychological and health benefits ,and recent research has shown that exposure to artificial lighting for long periods cause health damage. As a result, many modern and sophisticated systems has emerged to introduce day lighting into the building to integrate with the traditional system (windows). These systems are based on advanced technology and can be available at relatively low cost, especially light tubes that integrated with traditional lighting (windows) to light deep spaces. Hence this research introduces new methodology added by using one of the modern lighting systems (light tubes) in the design process of buildings, and achieve coherence and efficiency in lighting levels inside the deep spaces by combining traditional and modern system, using computer. Hence the research problem consists in the lack of local studies that link traditional systems (Windows) and modern systems, particularly light tubes to light up the deep spaces. The goal of the research, is to integrate traditional systems (Windows) and modern systems, (light tubes), within a unified practical framework to employ light tubes locally in buildings. So this paper first dealt with day lighting technology systems and then chose the (light tubes) for its high efficiency, and distinctive characteristics apart from being inexpensive. Then the study adopted the rate of uniformity concluded from the application practical side to determine lighting levels and the efficiency of the merger between the two systems down to the final conclusions of the framework and the imposition of hypotheses. .

Extended Restorative Spaces: Restaurants as a case study

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 3, Pages 69-87

Stress and tension are considered among the most important characteristics of today's modern society, which in turn affect the mental and physical health of the people, it affects negatively mostly on the ability of the person to focus and perform a mentally stressed tasks. in addition to the physical effects such as fatigue and exhaustion, and as a consequence it shows a falter in blood pressure levels, cholesterol and so on. Within such environment, the role of the architect and interior designer becomes more interesting to invest in social spaces and spaces of hospitality as a daily escape to temporary achieve rest and renewal of the human capabilities in ongoing efforts to meet adaptive demands of life. This research problem identified the lack of knowledge associated with the characteristics and designing elements for the interior restorative environments and supporting the concept of extending within the hospitality spaces (restaurants as a case study), where the research sought to encourage investing in restaurant spaces as a restorative spaces because it incorporating a wide range of types starting from luxury restaurants to fast food restaurants that are affordable to all social classes. In order to solve the research problem, the research adopted a hypothesis that states: “The designing elements of restaurant space support and achieve extend characteristics and thus contribute to achieve restoration and reduce tension levels”. The research focused on two main concepts in achieving the Extend, combining the physical extend (the concept of prospect) and conceptual extend which it consist of sub-concept that included (spirituality, characterization, and refuge).The research results proofed the main role of internal elements of restaurant spaces in achieving restoration relating to the concept of Extend .Finally the research ended displaying some of the conclusions and recommendations..

Indigenization text features in contemporary local architecture

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 3, Pages 29-40

The impact of the rapid progress of technology on local architecture features, led the so to chaos in architectural production and lack of harmony with each other, in particular, and with the general context in general, bore with two trends contradictory problematic firstly originality and return to the local architecture values and its assets and the second modernity and liberation of the old and the impossibility of return to the past.Confirmation continuity of civilization would have to come through innovation and Indigenization in the architectural expression and linked to the concepts of modernity, the identity of the concept of a significant effect in determining the way we understand architecture of the surroundings in which we live. Find it here tried to delve deeper into the study of features of the text of indigenization contemporary local architecture in terms of research problem came to the (Lack of clarity in the relationship between a features of the text of indigenization and technology in contemporary local architecture). And requests to achieve this theoretical framework to build features of the text of indigenization projects and apply this term to the draft General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers and then put the search results and to reach final conclusions about how to Features of indigenize projects and its role in the formation of contemporary domestic architecture.

Housing Contribution to Urban Regeneration - A case study of the Welsh Housing Quality Standards (WHQS) and the Can Do Toolkit in UK Wales

This research is looking at notion of urban regeneration and housing role on it. the research is structured into two parts; the first part is concerned with defining urban regeneration, its importance, and the and the different factors in academic literature. then it continues by dividing and thoroughly analyzing/discussing the different housing contributions to urban regeneration both directly and indirectly. it will provide critical review of these contributions against future needs and changes. the second part will further evaluate all discussed in the first part in practice through a casestudy of the welsh housing quality standards (whqs) and "the can do toolkit 1 & 2" introduced by the welsh housing committee in the united kingdom in 2003, 2006 and 2008 respectively. the research will consider the links between the different contributions and possible effects it may have on the region. finally, some key points will be presented in the conclusion to highlight the different housing contributions to urban regeneration and their potential benefits and limitations..

Improving the quality of architectural learning outcomes in Iraq

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 3, Pages 88-105

The research is concerned with the development of the quality of the learning outcomes through the development of a general system and a road map in order to make a qualitative leap in these outputs. This requires knowledge of the nature of the contemporary global intellectual climate (the climate of globalization) In the developed world. If specialized architectural knowledge is one of this economic knowledge, the graduates of this specialization are a feature of that knowledge that characterizes the country and carry cultural characteristics in addition to the qualities of their architectural specialization in order to practice their profession and provide the local labor market and then the world with their skills and expertise of the quality of excellence Scientifically and practically. This requires the knowledge of the nature of educational thought with its different philosophies and theories, which contribute effectively to the creation of an environment of architectural learning and the formation of those skills and specialized architectural expertise, and then to identify the quality features in architectural education, which is an integral part of the quality of higher education. The problem of research was to determine the quality requirements of the architectural learning outcomes in Iraq within a temporal space compatible with the contemporary intellectual climate, assuming a comprehensive strategic system for the different intellectual contexts affecting the architectural education under one intellectual umbrella to achieve the objective of research in building the ground for the development of architectural education. Which outlines the requirements for the quality of these outputs, and this is what the research done specifically through the development of a general framework for it. To come up with a set of conclusions and recommendations that emphasize the importance of taking into account the impact of global thought and educational thought and the conditions and standards of quality of architectural education by placing them within one system of development that takes into account the conditions of specialization and local culture and market needs..
