Abstract:   (426 Views)
Housing has always been studied due to its role in the daily lives of humans. This significant issue is a main subject of architectural research. Yet, each study investigates a limited number of factors effecting houses. The main aim of this study is to comprehensively investigate different subjects about housing determined by researchers and experts in Iran and other countries. Having an explicit list of important housing variables can help study the work in this scientific area to a high context and provide researchers with new ideas as well. Heading forward, 187 articles published in 15 Iranian scientific-research journals, along with 276 international papers from 15 Q1 and Q2 journals published in 2013-2017 were investigated. To find out the importance and ranking of each variable, this study, as a systematic literature review, implements Shannon’s entropy method. This methodology is a weighting tool to indicate the amount of uncertainty and challenge of components in a continuous probability distribution. All the factors measured, described or presented are extracted from Iranian and international papers which were respectively 264 and 281 in number. Based on resemblance of the concepts, they were classified in different categories of environmental factors, architectural elements, geometry and proportions, fundamental concepts of architecture, standards and codes, psychological and social concepts. Among these categories, the tangible physical areas including environmental factors and standards and codes have been considered in international papers in a quantitative perspective which should be further explored in Iranian studies. In contrast, qualitative and intangible factors such as the fundamental concepts of architecture and psychological and social concepts, which include variables that require more time to be understood, have been more challenged in Iranian articles. With the use of SPSS and 0.771 Cohen Kappa agreement coefficient and Shannon Entropy tool, in Iranian studies, the components of privacy, culture, area, lifestyle, mental and emotional comfort, satisfaction, security, identity, territory and meaning have been more important, attracted the highest attention, and can be recommended to be addressed in international papers. Whereas, light, ventilation, sustainability, climate, sunlight, temperature, green space, energy consumption, thermal comfort and wind are the most debated factors in international journals and can be focused more in Iranian articles.
