Type of architecture in context

Identifying features and components

The adaptation amount by using the new construction technologies

Totally context-oriented

The design is beyond its immediate context and the effect of that is perceivable beyond the scope of existing contexts. Instead it creates context for itself. It has played an important role in the city’s identity and has very likely become an icon.

Use of new technology only if combined with existing fields.

Deeply context-oriented

Building design meets the surrounding environment very well, and is combined with the environment without any dissociation.

Any kind of usage looks prohibited, so we need Non-Generalization Restoration and Conservation Approaches for the new built spaces.

Case between two above situations

At first glance, the building represents a lot of attention as a result of a great design and is certainly an icon by itself.

In case of non-iconic orientation use of new technology has no problem.

Totally Non-context-oriented

Building design has not any understanding of the context, while it could not overcome it. Finally, this type of buildings can be seen in a bad way.

The use of any new technology construction is permitted, because no solution could improve the current situation.

successful non-context-oriented

Building protrudes like a wounded finger, but the scheme of the building defines architecture as a creative person. This work is usually intentional and planned.

It is applicable Regarding to the identity and cultural context of the site and the project area.

Unwanted non-context oriented

Architect’s effort is to create an architecture by paying attention to the context and understanding of the environment. But for some reason he could not succeed. Including due to poor design, defects in communication with the environment or a combination of both.

Technology can use the existing contexts of culture and identity to reduce the amount of unwanted non-context-oriented design.

Obediently context-oriented

Building design reflects environment and neighborhood elements and buildings are combined seamlessly with the general view of the street.

Must be coordinated with environmental elements and neighborhoods and only in this case, technology can be used.

Stylistic Context-oriented

The design is such that makes it context-oriented based on the time period that it is made and also according to the dominant style that prevails the architecture the context-oriented one.

It is permitted in case of being in harmony with the style of architecture and monuments and the existing site.
