XML Understanding the thickness of appearances from the primitive hut to parametric architecture
P. 1-13
Abstract (1347 Views)   |   Full-Text (PDF) (826 Downloads)     |   Graphical Abstract   |   Highlights

Highlights:

  • The question of ornament, surface and appearance in architecture is elaborated.
  • Surface can be defined as more than a 2D phenomenon – i.e. with a thickness.
  • Semper’s “Principle of Cladding” led to Modernist metaphors, concepts and ideas.
  • Though related, “Woven Walls” and “Clothed Walls” are very different.
  • Instead of visual barriers or covering layers, surfaces produce architecture.


XML The Effect of Window Configuration on Daylight Performance in Classrooms: A Field and Simulation Study
P. 15-24
Abstract (1309 Views)   |   Full-Text (PDF) (699 Downloads)     |   Graphical Abstract   |   Highlights

Highlights:

  • Window configuration effects on the intensity and uniformity of daylight
  • Uniformity increase and glare reduction by light shelves and roof monitors
  • Best “daylight performance, better daylight intensity and uniformity via a roof monitor
  • Even daylight distribution in sun condition and less overall daylight in overcast, utilizing light shelves

XML Preference study for Urban Parks Activities using Multiple Method Group: A Case of Gorgan City
P. 29-38
Abstract (1047 Views)   |   Full-Text (PDF) (599 Downloads)     |   Graphical Abstract   |   Highlights

Highlights:

  • Preference for visiting urban parks in different group users was investigated.
  • A survey on 275 visitors of two popular urban parks in Gorgan was conducted. 
  • Visitors rated their preference on four activities: relaxation, socializing, nature involvement, and playing activities.
  • Relaxation and nature involvement was chosen as the most preferred activities.
  • Socializing and playing had the least preferred activities.
  • A significant difference in two variables: relaxation and nature involvement activity was found among marital status and visitor age groups.

XML A Review of Mental Urbanscape* Using Map-Based Methods (Case study: Tehran Ferdowsi Square)
P. 61-70
Abstract (1052 Views)   |   Full-Text (PDF) (514 Downloads)     |   Graphical Abstract   |   Highlights

Highlights:

  • Developing map-based methods could pave the way for understanding urbanscape more effectively.
  • Cognitive maps often provide an image of physical dimensions and structural perception of urbanscape.
  •  Narrative maps provide us with deeper layers of individuals’ perception of urban environment.
  • Evaluative maps help us to find and measure meanings and concepts of a place.
