The fusion of textiles and architecture, including processes, techniques and various materials, has a long and full history, but is largely neglected. In the past two decades, interest in the combination of architecture and textiles has been renewed with the ideas and ideas of architectural theorists, engineers, textile designers, materials scientists and artists. by investing technological technologies at The level of modern design and construction processes and advanced materials, has formed an important aspect of the critical and critical dialogue in applied and educational practice, &nbsp;In the 1990s, architecture found new ways to express itself by computer design, which allowed for the study of complex, flexible, dynamic and free forms with accuracy and precision. In its attempt to study the concept of textile in architecture, through the analysis of studies, there was a lack of knowledge, where the concept was not widely addressed and the study of strategies and inventory techniques. Which identified the research problem (lack of comprehension of previous studies of textile strategies and their use in contemporary architecture), The objective of the research was to construct a comprehensive theoretical framework that illustrates the strategies of textile and its use in contemporary architecture, This required the construction of a theoretical framework drawn from the literary, historical and architectural studies and the elaboration of the main vocabulary, which is included three vocabulary, the strategy of nature simulation, the strategy of emulating traditions and customs, the strategy of employing science and innovation, It has been applied to selected projects for practical study belonging to the third millennium (21st century) and carries the idea of ​​textile strategies and techniques, The main hypothesis is that "the characteristics of contemporary architextile vary in order to achieve the aesthetic, performance and functional dimensions of the different strategies adopted in contemporary architecture." Then subtract and analyze the final findings and conclusions.</p> Safaa AL-Deen Hussein Al-Samarae Ban Sultan Janabi Copyright (c) 2019 Ban Sultan Janabi 2019-12-19 2019-12-19 15 2 101 115 10.36041/iqjap.v15i2.472 Urban Resilience and City Infrastructure <p>This paper aims to study urban resilience as an adaptive system in a complex dynamic world along with its ability to comprehend disorder, change and reorganization to conserve identity. Urban resilience can be understood through the interrelationship between people and nature as a source-ecological system. The case study is represented by analyzing (Edlayd City in Australia) in depending on resilience advantages in which optimized by a renewable resource, zero carbon, equity in distributing energy, active environment, sustainable transportation and investing natural materials. Hence, these advantages have been applied on (Al-Karkh Haifa Street) in Baghdad in order to develop its infrastructure by employing renewable resources such as energy, sustainable transportation, refuge recycling, water system and submit suitable solutions for sewage water.</p> Sanaa Sati Abbas Sura Kassim Ameen Copyright (c) 2019 Sana’ Sati’ Abbas, Sura Kassim Ameen 2019-11-28 2019-11-28 15 2 87 100 10.36041/iqjap.v15i2.488 Water Urbanism <p>Water is an important element of urban development due to its relationship with changing environmental and climatic conditions in particular, thus, contemporary trends suggest the link between water and urban development processes, offering a new kind of safe coexistence with water through the role of urban design, social life and ecological renovation.</p> <p>The research explores the concept of (Water Urbanism) to make cities more coherent and open towards water environment, as a contemporary track contributing to the development and sustainability of cities on the one side, and extract the most important indicators for the design principles for the water urbanism approach on the other side, the problem of the research was identified as “the absence of a comprehensive theoretical framework for the design principles of the water urbanism approach according to sustainable city development trends”, and the hypothesis of the research states as "the design principles of the water urbanism approach for multi-uses are integrated through networks and water linkages”. The hypothesis of the research was tested in two urban models that adopted a clear blue network design with the open urban spaces system. The research found a set of theoretical and practical conclusions concerning formulas that fulfill the design principles of the water urbanism approach.</p> Nada Abdulmueen Rana Mazin Shereen Kamil Copyright (c) 2019 Nada Abdulmueen, Rana Mazin, Shereen Kamil 2019-11-28 2019-11-28 15 2 71 86 10.36041/iqjap.v15i2.478 Pre-manufacturing techniques and their role in achieving residential efficiency <p>Technology is an essential aspect in all fields, and its presence is an active presence that represents the vision of architecture and enhances its orientation. In addition to providing practical solutions that increase the value of architectural facilities and enhance their efficiency, and due to the profound impact of technology, there is a need to test their products, especially in the field of housing, where technology is a two-edged dimension that enhances the positive aspects and can pose a number of problems.</p> <p>In this context, a number of construction technologies are being offered as a solution to architecture, especially in the area of ​​housing. These techniques include pre-fabrication using cold-rolled steel plates, which present themselves as an appropriate, efficient, economical and quick solution to solve the housing problem. The objective of the study is to: Examine the aspects of this technique and measure its advantages by measuring its efficiency in the specific aspects of housing.</p> <p>According to the objective of the study, it took four procedural steps. The first was a statement of the cognitive aspects and frameworks for the construction of the buildings and their specific objectives, and technical aspects and dimensions (pre-fabrication using light-alloy iron).<br>The second step is to develop a theoretical framework for the performance aspects and features adopted for building techniques, which is a base through which the selected technology features can be measured as a study objective.</p> <p>And then move (under third procedural step) - to measure the specific aspects of the theoretical framework and apply it to a number of projects approved for this technique, under a technical and field study. And then the fourth procedural step represented by drawing conclusions from the empirical study and the general and detailed conclusion</p> Mufeed Ehsan Shok Alomairi Oday Abbas Aboud Hadeel Mowaffaq Mahmood Copyright (c) 2019 Mufeed Ehsan Shok Alomairi, Oday Abbas Aboud, Hadeel Mowaffaq Mahmood 2019-11-25 2019-11-25 15 2 55 70 10.36041/iqjap.v15i2.493 The Influence of Beliefs on Iraqi Architecture <p>Continue or discontinue scope between the previous &amp; the current architecture and their relation to the future requires orientation to know their references related to many beliefs considering it Cultural &amp; historical values give to architecture local identity. It also defines the degree of relationship between the human, society and its connection to the place. The beliefs are appeared by creating architecture link to cultural heritage and it is expressed by using the technology of the era. This research introduced many architectural studies to determine the research problem, which was "<strong>Lack of knowledge about the belief effect on architecture production in deferent periods, and its role to inquiry continuity &amp; discontinuity between the past and present". </strong>The study goals are to clarify the impact of belief on the Iraqi architectural production at different periods, extending from the emergence of Iraqi architecture to the present, and to affect the differing belief at formulation structure on the level of the exterior of the building: By dividing the effect of belief into four positions. "The prevalence of religious beliefs – Multiple beliefs – Lack of beliefs – emergence new beliefs". Each position differed in its treatment according to the time limit with adopting models designed in one of position or with two together to indicate the impact of different belief in them. This research reached many conclusions and recommendations for achieving the research objective.&nbsp;</p> Riyam Rajab Fenjan Al-Amara Ibrahim Jawad Kadhim Al-Yuosif Copyright (c) 2019 Riyam, Ibrahim Jawad Kadhim Al-Yuosif 2019-11-18 2019-11-18 15 2 42 54 10.36041/iqjap.v15i2.485
