The aim of the research was to "demonstrate the impact of the social needs of the individual on the transformation of the pattern of basic formations in architectural models (markets) in the historic city of Baghdad." The research was based on an inductive analytical approach to a common reading between the virtues of al-Farabi and Maslow's hierarchy of needs. It was based on the stages of the emergence of models of the traditional markets of Baghdad as a case study through which the vocabulary of the theoretical framework is applied in order to study the extent of the individual's interaction with the changing social variables spatially and temporally, and the reflection on the individual's profession in the city and its practice through the professional ethics of the work that is embodied in the city market.</strong></p> 2019-05-19T22:16:13+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Ibrahim Jawad Al-Yousif, Mustafa Kamil Kadhim Kadhim, Sura Kassim Ameen Ameen Formal characteristics of portable emergency shelters 2019-05-20T13:50:35+00:00 Assmaa Muhammed Al-muqramm Zaineb Saad Mahdi Mahdi <p><strong>Wars and natural disasters have long been a threat to human life in many ways, including the destruction and loss of housing and other buildings, which made it necessary to develop rapid shelter plans to reduce the disaster. Plans to rebuild affected areas often take a long time, forcing those affected to take temporary solutions without regard to utility and durability. The shelters were designed in different types according to need. The previous knowledge dealt with a variety of species that could be categorized into simple and complex shelters. The first included shelters that could be carried by humans and the other carried by different means of transportation. The materials used in manufacturing, It has a portable shelter such as flexibility, the possibility of integration and rigging of the structure, adaptation, self-sufficiency and other characteristics. The research problem was focused on "the cognitive need to explore the formal characteristics of portable emergency shelters". The aim of the research is to identify the formal characteristics of the portable shelter that distinguish it from other types of portable architecture. It ensures the efficiency and durability of the shelter in performing its functions . This requires a three-stage approach. The first is to construct a theoretical framework on the morphological properties of the portable shelter and to explore the nature of the vocabulary and indicators of the formal characteristics of portable shelters. These include visual properties, dimension characteristics, description and analysis of two-dimensional surfaces, three-dimensional building block Design). The second is to examine these vocabulary within selected samples, and thirdly to discuss the results and conclusions that thus reinforce the theoretical framework of the vocabulary.</strong></p> 2019-05-19T22:15:37+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Assmaa Muhammed Al-muqramm, Zaineb Saad Mahdi Mahdi Methodology of evolutionary selection in energy efficient architecture 2019-05-20T13:50:36+00:00 Younis Mahmoud M.Saleem Saleem Mohammed Hussein Salih Salih <p><strong>The growing demand to energy impacted negatively on environment as result of burning fossil fuel, and because buildings are main energy consumer, studies have been called towards creating efficient buildings, In which digital simulation technology, presented with designer to select efficient design solutions, which is uneasy task, due to the large number of models to be evaluated by simulation, consuming time and effort, due to large number of design variables interacting and conflicting in influence. Limiting the effectiveness of (traditional computer simulation approach). And Emersion (genetic algorithm approach) as an effective alternative to assess and optimize design, by automated steps for exchanging design variables between efficient models and produce more efficient new models, away similar to genetic evolution of organisms. But, lake of what and how to adopting this approach limited its use in local architectural researches and practices, Highlighting a problem: "Lack of cognitive clarity about the genetic algorithms approach in creating high-efficiency domestic compared to traditional approach”, aiming to “determining the nature of the genetic algorithm approach and its application to create accurate and high efficiency domestic designs in less time and effort comparing to the traditional approach”. Research methodology was reviewing genetic algorithm mechanism in solving design problems, making a comparison between traditional simulation approach and genetic algorithm approach on virtual model within local environment, determining the most efficient approach which balances characteristics (windows to wall ratio) and (perfect orientation) to provide the highest rates of natural lighting with minimum solar thermal gain, as well as the time it takes to complete the work according to each of the two approaches. Reaching a number of conclusions about effectiveness to adopt genetic algorithm approach in terms of time reduction and results accuracy compared to the traditional approach.</strong></p> 2019-05-19T22:14:25+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Younis Mahmoud M.Saleem Saleem, Mohammed Hussein Salih Salih Desire and need in architecture 2019-04-22T12:27:52+00:00 Ibrahim Jawad Kadhim Ahmed Abed Jalowb <p>Human beings are fundamentally linked to a process of instinct that can make it<br />into a process of research and generation until it becomes sufficient, and then it is<br />renewed in space and another field, and then the process continues without a specific<br />goal. The previous operations are centered on two poles: desire and need for<br />architecture, , As well as the impact of human desire in architecture, they are in a wide<br />space can not be easily understood.<br />The purpose of this research is to identify and integrate this process within the<br />framework of architecture and be specific to reach a goal that satisfies the two<br />processes. Hence, the research problem of (limits of understanding of dialogue of desire<br />and need in architecture) Of the tests and analysis of the results collected. The research<br />found that the architecture seeks to balance the processes of need and desire of the<br />recipient and the user, thus balancing the dual self and the subject in architecture, in<br />which the state of stability can be reached in thought and action.</p> 2018-12-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Ibrahim Jawad Kadhim, Ahmed Abed Jalowb Ethic imagination in architecture 2019-04-22T12:27:52+00:00 Abdullah Saadoon Salman Al-Maamouri Tuqa Mahmood Hameed <p>Research examines the concept of ethical imagination as one of the influential<br />concepts in the architectural design process. Who is known as "the Architect's<br />ability to think according to moral frameworks to become an important source<br />and then to be the task of balancing the poetic and the disciplined imagination<br />to produce an ethical architectural text that benefits the individual and society.<br />", thus be the research problem (implications of morally imaginative concept<br />in architecture ).So the research aims to explain the basics of moral fiction in<br />architecture, and we are on it. Research assumes that the foundations of moral<br />fiction have an impact on the formulation of the architectural product . For the<br />purpose of addressing the research issue and achieving the objectives of<br />research and verification of its hypothesis, a knowledge framework was first<br />built .Then a comprehensive theoretical framework for the imagination of the<br />moral architecture extracted from the architectural propositions to be finalized<br />in three main indicators is. Principles of moral constructional imagination, the<br />foundations of moral and ethical imagination, moral logic of the Moral<br />imagination architecture. Then apply them to elected projects to illustrate their<br />impact on the architectural output and to arrive at conclusions that show the<br />architectural imagination according its basics</p> 2018-12-15T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 Abdullah Saadoon Salman Al-Maamouri, Tuqa Mahmood Hameed
