:: P.H. D. Thesis ::
 | Post date: 2013/04/15 | 



Mr Molanai Salaheddin will present his P.H.D thesis on " The Improvement of structural attitude in designing process of architectural students by using of ARCH-ST method(With offering an advanced teaching Pattern & method)."at 15 P.M on 17 April 2013 under the guidance of Dr.Mozaffar , Farhang and Noghrekar Abdolhamid.





Improvement of architectural education has been considered by educational experts in every society. Due to the new trends in education and development of science and technology in different fields of study, there is also an urgent need in the field of architecture to be in line other field as well. Teaching of architecture is one of the most important and main points in education.


This research pays attention to the Architectural Design which is base and root of architecture, trying to find the lacks and deficiencies of academic teaching of Architectural Design and finally offer an advance training model based on the efficient teaching method and training program in order to improve students' learning. This model will be organized in design method of students of Architecture by relying on the interaction of performance, forming and structural view.


There are many factors that effect on teaching of architecture. One these factors are elements that should be taught to students. Elements such as: form, function, creativity and structures. Structure is one of the most important of them.


Architectural educational preparedness has been examined extensively over the last decade, with most almost universal agreement that the nation’s universities are producing graduates who are technically unprepared for the professional practice of architecture. Numerous analysts and writers have documented this problem as a national educational weakness, and identified it as a threat to the architecture profession. Poor technical preparation and the failure to adequately educate architecture students in structures is the result of some basic problems. First, the structures curriculum, teaching methods, and instructional tools are borrowed wholesale from engineering programs with little modification. One of the lessons that those elements are very important in that is designing of architecture. Amount of 65 to 70 % of the main structure of syllabus and lessons of architecture course is related to architectural design. The topics of architectural design are Variety. 


The architectural educator and professors must know those factors in architecture and different methods of education .Then they should use the best method for teaching those factors in different lessons of architecture schools.


To do this, first the research will investigate different theories and ideas in relation to the teaching in general. Then the findings will be adapted to the different architectural courses.


This research has 3 axes: architectural design, structure in architecture and teaching of architecture.


The results show that there are special methods useful in architectural education. This research shows that we can categorize methods of teaching of architecture from basis of various structures. The research introduced one method that named ARCH-ST for teaching in architectural design with emphasis on improving of student’s structural attitude. The results show that by using of this method student’s structural science improve 42.96 %. By improvement of structural science, the quality of student designing will be improved.


This method can be applied in different schools of architecture in Iran, to improve the quality of architectural student learning.


Key words: teaching, education, architecture, method, pattern. Arch-st.
