This phrase referred to the fact that media (as extensions of the human mind and body) are inextricable but independent from their content (human thought). While the words are esoteric, it has shaped my studies and practice of educational technology at San Diego State University. As my studies progress and my skills grow, I have realized that the idea that “the medium is the message” is essential to instructional design. The constantly emerging media that educational technologists must adopt requires that we understand the full range of potential cognitive benefits and pitfalls associated with each medium. We must now closely examine the ‘affordances’ (or unique, beneficial properties of a medium) and constraints (or limitations) inherent in each new technology that we use.
Analysis of approaches in designing in these desolate lands is the subject of this research. This thesis lies in understanding the obvious and hidden values in historic center of thehran, and analize the new building built in this area, and trying to find the best approach for design in this fabric with cultural and historical value, so with maintaining the obvious and hidden values and accepting new role and strengthen and updating previous role, still be able to continue living. Any intervention in the physical structure of the historic fabric will change irreversibility the history of it forever. So its necessary to planned for the cities that have the ability to change and provide continuity with the past. Design approach that is adopted in the historic fabric, should be an approach to improvement.
Aldo Rossi is another influential architect, who has been recognized for his architectural drawings and theory. His theory has become quite interesting as he has criticized that there is a lack of understanding the city within the architecture field. He believes that a city should be studied as it is constructed over time. One of his earliest and well known projects was the addition to the already present cemetery of the city of Modena in northern Italy.

“Design… shapes ideas to become practical and attractive propositions for user or customers. Design may be described as creativity deployed to a specific end.” (Hobday, Boddington, & Grantham, 2011) It is beyond the scope of 1500 words to explore all issues revolving this topic, so for the purposes of my argument I will be looking at design through the disciplines of architecture and fashion. With this in mind, I have interpreted that ‘me’ is the object and ‘this’ is the underlying idea/s behind the design. In considering this, design is a technical field, ultimately based around elements and principles. There has been great discussion i... ... middle of paper ... ..., 02 06).
This contributes heavily to Pompeii’s productive and successful agricultural lands. The geographical location of Pompeii was a prominent feature as it contributed heavily to the city’s economic, industrial, and social aspects. The economic activity and industry are closely linked, and both played an important role in the everyday life of Pompeii’s citizens. Trade was a key aspect to the city’s economic activity. Strabo tells us that Pompeii was the port for Nuceria and Nola.
Phenomenology is flow of philosophy which influence modern architecture and a field of research, experiencing to build materials and space in aesthetic aspects. In phenomenology, the environment is determine as ‘’the place’’. This place is not like locality but comprises of some specific things like shape, colour, material and texture, and all these merge to form the atmosphere. Phenomenology takes the idea of subjectivity and makes the situation and its unique conversation with its place the proper topic and not the thing itself. The history of phenomenology in architecture begins in 1970, over the last 30 years, from the writings of Martin Heidegger, a German philosopher, who starts to have significant effects in modern architectural theory.
Accordingly, the different architectural styles found in architectural of an era and/or different eras are significantly shaped by the variations found in the design values embedded in the design process. In that sense, changes in architecture are created by the change in design values. To avoid, or at least, decrease repeating history, Noori’s study provided a perspective on adapting a promising concept in architecture, borrowed from philosophy: the “transvaluation” of values. Besides, since architecture is mainly connected to human life, the study considered and examined Nietzsche's “transvaluation” project. In order to do so, the study took the state of contemporary architecture as a case study for exploring the “transvaluation” theme.
For Holl, the experiential potential of architecture provides the discipline to establish such a connection; the connecting dimension of architecture is because of the phenomenal properties of a built form. Architecture, as the art of changing the environment and the space, involves a dialectic process between the physical and the intangible world of our own. Martin Heidegger describes phenomenology as “the science of phenomena” (Heidegger M. 1977). Phenomenology in its etymological sense is the activity of giving the account of the way things appear. Firstly, chapel of St Ignatus, seattle by Steven Holl was completed 1997.
This chapter is an attempt to define and trace the development of an emerging genre of spatial design known as Narrative. It aims also to shed some light on some theories and classifications related his issue. Understanding and analyzing previous endeavors in the area will form the cornerstone of exploring the attributes of a space which is make it capable of telling a story and conveying a message. Nigel Coates - one of the most original and profound British theorists and thinkers in architecture, interior and product design – has written profoundly and practiced design based on what he calls a ‘Narrative’ approach to design. (Incerti, G. 2008) In his newly published book – Narrative Architecture – (which will form the premises for this chapter) Nigel Coats stated “In exploring narrative, I have no predominant theory from which a new architecture can spring”, he also claimed that “Concepts of narrative are built into the post-millennial language of architectural debate, but relatively few of these concepts are organized in prints” (Coats, N. 2012).
Critical Regionalism could also be seen as a solution to cultural issues and the problems of architectural identity. Frampton’s argument is that critical regionalism should not only answer to context, but it should also value the progress of universal modern architecture (Frampton,1983). An important aspect of Critical Regionalism is that the occupants of any design experience the local climatic c... ... middle of paper ... ...cteristics, with appropriate current technology. It is the search for an architecture that is meaningful within its context and at the same time participates in the more universal aspects of a contemporary mobile society.” McGinnis (1999:211), Argues that, the main focus of critical regionalism should be place and resistance, which he terms ‘bioregional restoration’ the aims of this term are to: “…re-immerse the practice of human communities within the bio-regions that provide their material support…. Bioregional restoration can be a therapeutic strategy to expose ourselves viscerally to local ecosystem process, to foster identification with other life forms and to rebuild community within place, as the insights and local information that emerge from restoration activities affect the cultural and economic practice of the human population” (Cole, Lorch, 2003:122).
