Formal Transformation in Urban Context Analytical Study to the Formal Transformation in Urban Context By using the remote sensing

The Iraqi Journal of Architecture and Planning, 2009, Volume 8, Issue 16, Pages 60-82

Many researchers interest directed to study the urban context as one of important concept to achieve temporal and spatial continuity in urban environment and link the building with neighboring.
The paper deals with urban context as:-
integral contain apposes clear orders and also statue procedural definition it is contain of potential and outstanding orders which instituted from joined parts in urban fabric, linked together in potential relations and bear urban and cultural values posses formal conduct, coinciding functional and rotating and bear association deliberative meanings the potential in shared between the parte and the whole and the outstanding in formal properties and vision for elements which undergo for natural and coactive transformation on the two dimensional and three dimensional level.
The outstanding order represents visual formal for urban context and the potential order represented in whole and partial syntax properties behind visible phenomena.
The research confirm upon studying the transformation in formal properties within the urban context by subtract ideas, studies of transformation in formal properties on the level of the whole or part within the urban context , with this prospective the paper problem determined as: " There is no obvious conception about transformation nature in formal properties of urban context ”.

The paper hypothesis” the transformation in formal properties within the urban context at the level of whole causes the formal transformation in properties at the level of parts. ” was tested in real urban context represent by Ancient Damascus City in Syria as one of the important urbanite and heritage element which has different type of context and it crouch to economic ,society and physics conditions.
The formal indicators was defined and measured by using (GIS) techniques in drawings and Analyzing visual and link formal properties on the level of the whole or part, the paper concluded that deforming transformation in urban context may cause the transformation in the context identity but it also achieve formal homogeneity and prevent the urban chaos, when urban gradual growth and transformation may cause formal heterogeneity if building roles was not controlling the transformation process and organize the. the urban mix between old and new buildings.
