The impact of technology in Indigenization strategy the local contemporary architecture as a case study

The Iraqi Journal of Architecture and Planning, 2017, Volume 16, Issue 2, Pages 46-59

The swift development of technology have a major act in architectural project making, which Features by changes and development in the intellectual and formal aspects. It showed the new formal Types of buildings with the zeitgeist of the technical aspects whether it is in the process of design or construction. Many of the architectural projects appeared that carry a formality contemporary values stemming from technology concepts within the context of local architecture, from here research come to study the impact of technology in the process of production the contemporary local architecture. Thus emerged the concept of technological indigenization which mean (Approach for framing the mechanisms of the project intellectual and physical vocabulary through available means, skills and mental ability, accommodate contemporary reality and emulate the spirit of the original towards achieve communication between past, present and future). Research problem is lake of knowledge about the relationship between the technology concepts and indigenization strategy in general and types of creation the contemporary local architecture project in specific. Research aim find a theoretical framework describing the nature of the relationship between the technology concepts and indigenization strategy in the creation the contemporary local architecture project. For that research methodology achieved built theoretical framework contents six vocabulary (mechanisms of technological indigenization strategy, Features of indigenize projects, contextual of technological indigenization, layers of technological indigenization, spatial of indigenize projects and goals of technological indigenization). And the application of these items on the two projects and then put research and reach final conclusions about how the technological indigenization strategy achieve contemporary local architecture..

Consumption in Architecture(Study in the formulas for dealing with consumption in the local architecture)

The Iraqi Journal of Architecture and Planning, 2012, Volume 11, Issue 25, Pages 158-181

Architectural trends and their developments witnessed new ideas at many levels; one of these ideas
is known as consumption, which is one of the new themes in an old concept and in its presence,
which takes place effective today in the field of architecture. And plays a role in changing the
architectural constants targets, and plays a role in changing the architectural constants targets, or
classification of priorities. Every body tries to search for new and evolving architecture through
what is available has advanced technological methods. This will be directed Search, make the
process of change and evolution in architecture is not only very close and meet human needs, but
to make the first need produce innovative and creative architecture. Determine the general
direction of search in the consumption of meaning forms in architecture
The research theoretical knowledge for consumption in architecture, as Figure concept of
evolution, and the need to study technology and its relationship with both local architecture and
globalization. And a global review of various studies to try to reach the first step of the research
problem of (knowledge before about formats consumption in meaning and form in the context of
local architecture). And thus produced the aim of the research, to clarify the concept of
consumption in architecture, through, to clarify the presence of consumption in the local
architecture, and the potential to achieve consumption in the local architecture.
Knowledge has helped to enrich the architectural framework of research and the formation of his
variable, enhanced architectural studies available to achieve a theoretical framework integrated,
variable has been to, the consumption component, and intellectual attitudes towards consumption,
and forms adopted, and detailed processes. To use variable, has helped in the application on
projects elected, so as to achieve a comprehensive conception of the nature of the relationship
between variables, when applied collectively elected on samples of the application. The research
found that consumption is a copy of the forms, and unconsumption is a simulation and new styles
of architecture and context beyond..
