Practical Concepts of Structure for Architecture Students
Javad Tabatabaei , Mehdi Mahmoudi Kamelabadi and Mahyar Javidruzi
Abstract: As architecture, structural instruction in traditional communities was based on person to person or master and apprentice instruction system. In the late 1940’s, by gradual establishment of first architecture school in Iran, traditional methods of architectural instruction were disappeared and "master-apprentice architect" was replaced by "academic architect". So, instruction of technical topics, especially, structure and statics have been always among concerns of universitie’s administrators and educators. To design an instructional model, five factors are important: instructional goals, instructional status, instructional contents, instructional method and tools and evaluation. If proper and practical contents are not transferred to students, it will cause confusion and discouragement for learning continuance and a question always will come to student’s minds: what are presented subjects by teacher for? Therefor, the main concern of this article is attaining structural practical concepts in architecture. First, current article restates importance of structure at architecture and states structural instruction’s problems. Then according to Iran’s Ministry of Science confirmed topics, proper and practical structural concepts for architecture students are suggested. The purpose of study is to increase structural instruction’s quality for architecture students by presentation of practical contents. The study method for attaining practical concepts in this article is quality-based and it is of case study kind. By analyzing structural and architectural typical samples, structural theories which are practical for architecture design will be derived and these theories can be used as structural instruction basis for architects.
