Integration Design Process

General Description

There are always lots of questions coming in mind when we are designing. These bunch of Qs needs their answers adapted to design requests and conditions. Instead of all impacts from owners and other criteria similar, the aim of any design should be defined by the whole terms and special situations. Forms, functions, context, environmental issues, sustainability, energy, structure, aesthetic and all of these parts need to take part in a series of view sight. This view sight is the actual architect’s guarantee labeled as answers to first place questions. We all are living in a world with lots of complexities. Each field of study has its own difficulties and issues which architecture really is somewhere middle all the technical and practical studies. Building physics are getting more and more sensitive because of their effects on our world. Sustainability is one of the most important part of these stories. The complexity in every design needs to be simple to understand. Lots of parameters are defining now a days and in fact the current approaches coming by are moving toward setting these parameters. There are also lots of standards definition and certificates came after all these standards which will approve considering them. Lots of architecture stuffs are moving toward providing these standards with no creativity which brings us to defining a process, flexible enough to vast the options. The question here is how we can provide this process?

Theory as Multi-function Definition

The whole project has been defined on 2 major ideas from Energy and Structure facts of Iranian architecture. The scenario gets it identity beyond the question of “How structure element can provide a range of abilities to energy demands or better adaptively?” This question brings us to early stages of Iranian architecture samples in both structure and energy principles. One of the most amazing structures in Iran is Azadi Tower placed in Tehran. The structure has been built on a great idea of Pa-To-Pa arches. These arches behave as controlling the loads coming from pressures to get neutral for each other by directing them together. This idea is the greatest basics of structural design in this thesis. In the other hand, we can find Iranian domes responses through the warm and dry climate condition to make the most shadowing during a day beside the greatest fluid capturing caused by temperature differences occurred based on the shadowing. These domes actually are structural claddings for most of high level spans adapted to that time technology, but beside they also have lots of integration with climatic parameters. These facts are what this thesis is trying to reach adapted to newest technology and integration design process.
