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.
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
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
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
Key words: teaching, education, architecture,
