the system is stand , this structure is called by ( Chomesky) the Generating rules .
Biology showed that the transformation which occurred on form , are external changes and

In Architecture , the Literature submitted the types of transformation , which were the
transformation in the elements and the transformation in the relationships . Also they
submitted some transformation mechanisms , directly or indirectly . Also did the Ethics
The research aims to built a theoretical framework of tansformation, and determine the basic
mechanisms used in Architecture and Urban Design.
The research reached to five items determined the theoretical framework of the transformation
which were , the aim of transformation , the transformation formulas , the types of
transformation , the transformation mechanisms, and the behavior of the systems during tle
