The Performance Of The Gravitas Act In The Architectural Products
The importance of the act of gravitas in architecture show as a normative
rule on the sublimity and nobility of architectural products, through the
characteristics of objective rationality and social interaction which is characterized
by the act of gravitas such as clam, persistence, seriousness and others . Thus, a
series of architectural studies and invitations have recently emerged to restore the
gravitas of architectural product, having been overshadowed by the features of
manipulation, ironic, softness, self-selectivity and other features that contradict the
characteristics of the gravitas act.
The studies implicitly or explicitly introduce a set of performance
characteristics to achieve the act of gravitas in the architectural output, but did not
refer to it as a special study and a comprehensive collection that can be referred to
as a standard rule or design characteristics that benefit the designer in building his
architectural work (the research problem). The general objective of the research is
consistent with the calls for a return to values in architectural products, and
specifically seeks to find the characteristics of the performance of the act of
gravitas in the architectural output to reach the most important mechanisms and
formal elements. The research adopted a synthetic analytical approach between
the supporting studies and the architectural studies to derive a comprehensive
theoretical framework for the performance of the act of gravitas in architectural
output. And then its application to test the hypotheses. The research found two
fundamental aspects of the performance of the gravitas, a formal aspect, which
was characterized by the repose of form and gravity of form, and an interactive
aspect related to the characteristics of the form associated with human and society
and represented the value commitment in form and strictness in form.
