Questions related to Theory of Architecture
The three terms indigenous, vernacular and traditional are used frequently not only in architecture but in other fields also. Generally when we talk about them we know what we mean, but I am looking for definitions of each term which can distinguish one to other.
An integrated architectural design is considered an item to develop teamworking skills for professional practise. I’d to know the issues and models that used in architectural education.
Geoffrey Broadbent presented four types of architectural design as mentioned above. I’d like to know the difference between them pls.
The structuralism is one of the philosophical approaches that affected architectural design and scientific research. I’d like to get some evidences by architects or researchers whom used this approach.
Architects and topologists need to follow certain steps to transfer any ‘’Type’’ to a ‘’Model’’. I like to know these steps in sequence.
Regarding the theory of type and typology in architecture, architects and schools have different points of view. For example between new realism architecture of British architect Robert Venturi, and new rationalism in architecture of Italian architect Aldo Rossi. I like to know how they treated with type to get new models of specific design.
The contemporary urban design as being about place-making, so I am looking to experience the process of transforming spaces into places.
Post-modern architecture presented many paradigms including feminism. I like to know can this paradigm influence architectural design act and then communication and interpretation.
Nature’s imitation have different methods to design sustainable architecture. Would you identify these methods and the architect that follows each one.
The Phenomenological Approach is one of the philosophical approaches that affected architectural design and scientific research. I’d like to get some evidences by architects or researchers by using this approach.
Usually functionalists and topologist have different points of view regarding physical and cultural milieus. Architects and urban designers have to start design process from a specific point. What do you prefer and why.
According to the post-structuralism in architecture, the decomposition presented as a mechanism to deals with architectural form. I like to know the effect of such mechanism, at least the perception act.
The relationship between form and meaning varied through historical periods as a result of the nature of thinking changes reflecting specifically on that relationship. I am looking for characteristics of communication and interpretation act of such relationship through Modernism and Post-Modernism periods.
The book of complexity and contradiction in architecture by Robert Venturi focused on the complexity in architecture, but I could not find the rules or procedures to implement such complexity in order to get the meaning of ambiguity through architectural form in architectural design studio.
Deconstructivist in architecture presented the new system of irregular geometries and the end of perfect and the beginning of imperfection.
can you present any justifications for its creativity?
As apart of architecture theories, there are different themes, concepts, and ideas applied to design studio. I will be grateful if you suggest any references please.
The analytical approach to the principles of designing with the forces of nature, climate, in a deliberate and empirical way can be said to be a seminal and critical design research method, especially in architectural theory. The aim being sustainable design as a matter of necessity and socio-economically responsible agenda in design practices. Some researchers opined that the need to have adequate and sufficient weather and solar house component operating data is a prerequisite in any attempt to evaluate solar house design performance. In this similar vein, it has been highlighted that climate, socio-lifestyle (use), and architectural design affordances of form and function, and economical low-energy building operation systems are strategic parameters.
‘WHAT’ parameters can be added or reduce? ‘HOW’ can these parameters contribute in the (Re)Search for appropriate architectural design paradigms? For instances, Can we reduce the process of 'design research' by omitting some steps, such as on-site survey and measurements? In other words, the design research is essentially proposing a quantum proportion passive solar house modules base on climate, optimum design elements, and most energy efficient lifestyle operations.
the data and books are extinct on the website can you help me

There are several new initatives having been established over the last 10 years or so in Europe to both strengthen the relationships of work and creativity between the skilled building trades and the design community, something that has of course occured really since the Medieval period of Europe, but only recently being taken more seriously as an authentic field of enquiry for research and building design practice, also from intentionally trans-disciplinary and trans geographic perspectives. Examples include the Baumuster Zentrale and the Haus der Farbe in Zurich, Byggnadsfabrikken i Malmo, Sweden, http://byggnadsvard.se/hos-dig/byggnadsv%C3%A5rdsbutiker/byggfabriken-malmo and independent craftsmen such as Else Sprossa Rønnevig in Norway. Further, Haakon Goethesen, an experienced restoration carpenter in Norway, wrote a recent book on window restoration based on his long experience, in Norwegian: GAMLE VINDUER HISTORIKK RESTAURERING OG VEDLIKEHOLD. How do we build more intense, effective, authentic dialogue? Finally, a recent book from 2012 on the restoration of the Norwegian Stave Churches deals with this issue from an interedisciplinary perspective. Can we build a European wide network of interested people interested in this effort?
One of my student wants to work on architecture of temples. I want to know how architectural patterns are related to socio-economic environments. What are the recent trends in Geography of Architecture?
I am working with wood but when trying to draw a reciprocal frame there is a differential error that generates a unsymmetrical structure when total number of members are greater than 20.
Thank you for your help.

I myself find integrating it somehow keeping student more involved.
But integrating Drafting , Projection and visual Studies with the Design module at the beginning might make it hard to digest for beginning students.
Has there been any works on Haptic codes in architecture? Can there be a concept of Haptic form?How do we haptically percieve environment and architecture and how do we code it into aesthetics?
I am researching Mary Elizabeth Jane Colter, architect and designer for the Fred Harvey Company and Santa Fe Railway. I am trying to locate her research sketchbooks or field notes of Puebloan ruins in the southwest from the 1930s. Does anyone have any ideas outside of NPS or the two company collections?
As part of a lit review in preparation for a Culture and Theory essay within a Masters program. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
