The Integrity in the product and movement of architecture

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 2, Pages 20-32

Integrity affects in the development methods of the architectural projects, creativity contexts carrying new characters which increase it is effectiveness. Finding the way of dealing with a designer and recipient of the architectural product. Therefore, the research question in the integrity architectural movement throughout it is history and the compatibility between the product and movement of architecture.
The research determined methodology included the answer of the question with two methods in; Analytical approach, and represent ;( 1) agreement method in a change of place. by using design act in how it integrates architecture between it is visible and invisible systems thought architectural product.(2)The difference method in the movement of time, the integration of architectural movement ,by measurement concept of Aristotle through the behavior of designer .and from these methods achieved between the constituent elements of the architectural product to demonstrate the integration and decadence of the production cycle, while the rational approach was used as a special integrative approach.
The research found that the loss of boundaries between integration and decadence, and they're being two degrees of degrees the presence of the integrity architectural product movement. .

The impact of technology in Indigenization strategy the local contemporary architecture as a case study

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 2, Pages 46-59

The swift development of technology have a major act in architectural project making, which Features by changes and development in the intellectual and formal aspects. It showed the new formal Types of buildings with the zeitgeist of the technical aspects whether it is in the process of design or construction. Many of the architectural projects appeared that carry a formality contemporary values stemming from technology concepts within the context of local architecture, from here research come to study the impact of technology in the process of production the contemporary local architecture. Thus emerged the concept of technological indigenization which mean (Approach for framing the mechanisms of the project intellectual and physical vocabulary through available means, skills and mental ability, accommodate contemporary reality and emulate the spirit of the original towards achieve communication between past, present and future). Research problem is lake of knowledge about the relationship between the technology concepts and indigenization strategy in general and types of creation the contemporary local architecture project in specific. Research aim find a theoretical framework describing the nature of the relationship between the technology concepts and indigenization strategy in the creation the contemporary local architecture project. For that research methodology achieved built theoretical framework contents six vocabulary (mechanisms of technological indigenization strategy, Features of indigenize projects, contextual of technological indigenization, layers of technological indigenization, spatial of indigenize projects and goals of technological indigenization). And the application of these items on the two projects and then put research and reach final conclusions about how the technological indigenization strategy achieve contemporary local architecture..

Assesses The Green Infrastructure A proposed development plan for green infrastructure To the city of Kut

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 2, Pages 74-87

The Problems increase dramatically day after day in cities and declining quality of life, Resulting the decline on ecosystems, To address the problems in an integrated manner infrastructure green concepts emerged in the nineties of the last century and spread throughout the world, but there seems to be lack of understanding of green infrastructure in Iraq, as well as the weakness of environmental awareness and the important role of biodiversity for human life, Therefore, the search is trying to address the knowledge gap of this concept, as well as the development of strategies for the development in the city of Kut, through an integrated a comprehensive approach and not as parts individually guidance of the concept of infrastructure Green to take advantage of the banks of rivers and water resources that most Iraqi cities by the fall, to take advantage of the water sources including in harmony with the principles of green infrastructure. The research found that there is a shortage and poor distribution of green areas in the city of Kut, not to take advantage of the city characterized by an abundance of water resources in the promotion of green areas and invested for the establishment of an effective green infrastructure site. Search integrated strategies for the development of green infrastructure in the city has also developed in line with the site and the privacy of the city of Kut..

Urban Agriculture Spaces in Built Environment Analytic study of spatial properties and multi-uses

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 2, Pages 32-45

The research had taken the concept of urban agriculture as one of the concepts that appeared within the sustainable trends in the city, and because of limited green areas, popular growth, and ongoing neglect to the urban landscape in cities. Moreover, in order to get the essential role of urban agriculture in the city, it requested the need for research in this concept.
Therefore, the research problem appeared, as a knowledge need to explore the urban agriculture concept and its applying ability in order to avoid ongoing neglecting of urban landscape in the city.
In order to solve the research problem, a previous literature review had been at the origin of the concept, reached to the most important vocabulary and indicators related to the special properties and the multi-use activity of the urban agriculture spaces of the city. Then the research examined the hypotheses, by a destructive and analytic study for urban agriculture projects.
The results showed the connection of achieving urban agriculture within city landscape, by the contextual linking as the main characteristics, also the social and cultural uses as the most important use achieved by the presence of urban agriculture in the city landscape.
Finally it had been reached to a theoretical model for urban agriculture in the city landscape..

Re-Pointing As Technique in Repair and Sustainable Architectural Preservation

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 2, Pages 60-73

Urban heritage has great historical and cultural value, There are initiatives to repair buildings where have been damaged, the problem lies in repair techniques, skill, quality of materials used, as of things that have taken on an ongoing renovations on buildings macerated, is the use of different building materials from the original in terms of the scale or type, that the quality of the old as the aesthetic, the privacy and the symbolism dimensions become, architecture constants, and the need to develop appropriate ways to do these reforms, which can cause a lot of damage to the architectural heritage if it not treated required accurate ways.
Research problem: There is a knowledge lack about Re-pointing as Technique in Repair and sustainable Architectural Preservation. And lies this shortage because of lack of attention research about this topic in the colleges of Architecture and Civil Engineering Curriculum, the Research define the concept of Re-pointing as important technique as one of repair tool in Sustainable Architectural Conservation, that the repair and Conservation work should investigate the principles of the three sustainability dimensions, environmental, social and economic through to Achieve practical, executive, architectural, and visual considerations, (unity, proportion, pointing language between the brick and the pointing), must use pointing mortar materials similar to the original material in the properties of style and color. It is locally available materials, because of its significant impact on reducing the cost and give the identity of the building construction and architecture of the region, the preparation of the technical staff are able to study and determine, cost, The implementation of the work and preparation manner that respects the character and appearance of the building..

The Effect of Music on The International Architectural Design Process Output

The iraqi journal of architecture and planning, Volume 13, Issue 2, Pages 87-105

Music has always had it's generative role to build societies as one of modern culture basis . Arab Muslims had their own share of music industry as Al Farabi divided melodies to : delightful , imaginary & emotional , As Ibn Khadoon assured that civilizations fall as music falls eventually , some declared that music can transfer a still painting to a musical , motionable or aesthetic view of expression . As music's role is increasing in fields specially architecture , thus , the main problem comes about musical architectural relationship , revealing the special case of somposing architectural texture musically , & the research problem exposed lack of knowledge about it & affection of music on architecture with outputs by subjecting architecture to music to promote outputs of design . This research aims to clarify that relationship & apply it on international buildings as the reseach concluded that sensual & moral indications can motivate designer's imagination to design his outlines , aiming architectural use of music to produce intellectual joy ( objective ) reaching visible joy ( subjective ) by comprehensing an indicated concept based on previous experiments , as conclusions included that slow rhythm music leads to curved line and organic shapes & to straight lines & angles when listening to fast rhythem music . Key words : music , music & architecture , composing & simulation ..
