Reflections Of Arabic Literature On Architectural Representation, Othman El Obeidi, Aya Salamah, Rola Ayoub, Abed El Karim Owaydat

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

Literature and architecture have long been connected where both are forms of art; literature is a verbal form of art whereas architecture takes a social form. Both domains play a major role in heritage inheritance and representation and are immensely linked to each other; each is capable of representing and embodying the other. Gloomily, in light of digital technology, Information Age, and onslaught of globalization, the reflections of the practices of Arabic literature on architectural representations, after being practiced together since ancient periods, have retracted in recent times thus architecture in the Arab cities has started to veer far away ...


Twisted Buildings: Concepts And Approaches, Amani Marmar, Sally Zouia, Sahar Ismail, Ahmad Hallik Sep 2021

Twisted Buildings: Concepts And Approaches, Amani Marmar, Sally Zouia, Sahar Ismail, Ahmad Hallik

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

With the emerging of new technologies, the look for more sustainable towers appears. Through designing twisted towers, an aerodynamic and energy efficient structure can be made to reduce materials and wind loads towards it. By definition, a twisted building is one that has gradually rotating floor plates along its height. The problem here rises due to the risk of structural failure and lack of load transfer and unorganized interior function. Thus, this research aims to detect the design solutions used to execute the twisted buildings achieving stability, safety, and withstanding climatic effects. In order to accomplish the mentioned aim, the ...

Developing Design Guidelines Towards Safer Park: The Case Of Ramlet El Baida, Valerie Nader Kassem, Ayman Afify

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

Public urban park is a very important feature in the city, it is responsible for the behavior of the cities and gives an identity of the city besides country to portray it in front of the people. Well maintained park leads to healthy life and well-being. Also, it holds social value and attachment of people to it. Despite wide consensus on the importance of public parks for city dwellers’ social lives as well as their physical and mental health, popular discourses and journalist reports reflect a growing demonetization of public space in many cities around the world. This is because ...

Exploring A New Urban Strategy To Organize The Informal Settlements In Tripoli, Ayman Wehbe

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

A dynamic urban form can be defined as emerging in the planning, and development of urban centers as a city where there is a defined perimeter, inside which lies a population that is self-sufficient supporting by the technologies and economy within the city fully employs the population, the services, and cultural infrastructure within the city are sufficient to supply for the population in the cities. One of the most significant driving forces of change in any urban system is population development. This randomness in growth causes an imbalance in the civil system through environmental problems on the life system that ...

New Considerations In Designing The Circulation Elements To Reduce Covid 19 Infection, Sara Chamass, Selim Kilani, Anas Mattar Sep 2021

New Considerations In Designing The Circulation Elements To Reduce Covid 19 Infection, Sara Chamass, Selim Kilani, Anas Mattar

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

As a result of the global pandemic recession of COVID-19, cities have imposed several restrictions to control this outbreak by closing their frontiers and forcing social distancing. The conjecture has arisen as to how architecture could be entirely influenced. This field is involved in finding solutions to reduce the spread of this pandemic which became a new issue. Unfortunately, due to the shortage of the movable and flexible circulation elements, the considerations and architectural preventive measures taken were affected during the planning of the post-pandemic built-environment. This paper, therefore, aims to propose a checklist of new design considerations for the ...


Potentials Of Containers In Creating Modular Architectural Spaces, Karim Al-Khatib, Jinan Makkawi, Ali Kobeissi Sep 2021

Potentials Of Containers In Creating Modular Architectural Spaces, Karim Al-Khatib, Jinan Makkawi, Ali Kobeissi

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

Containers are currently considered as one of the inventive trends of framing architectural objects. Container architecture is defined as the type of architecture that is characterised by the usage of steel containers as a structural elements and architectural envelope that can be presented as a part of architecture or a function that an activity can happen in it. Due to the specific dimensions that the container has, architects tend to use it to obtain modularity in their projects and the modular design strategies refer to using the containers as a standard unit to carry out the process, these containers are ...


Detecting Types Of Phobia In Contemporary Architecture, Fatima Ghosn, Loulwa Alama, Mohamad Azhari Sep 2021

Detecting Types Of Phobia In Contemporary Architecture, Fatima Ghosn, Loulwa Alama, Mohamad Azhari

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

Phobia in its broadest sense is an irrational fear or feeling, created in a person toward an object or a certain situation that might happen around him or in his imagination and it can be related to natural elements such as animals, insects, oceans, fire and heights. Furthermore, it can be related to build environment and manmade spaces or more simply, to architecture. Unfortunately, architects shifted from the standardisation and regularity to creating innovative and irregular spaces that are reflected by the exterior and interior design of the building without having any concern of the negative consequences such as phobias ...

How Have Adventure Playgrounds In The United Kingdom Adapted Post-March Lockdown In 2020?, Pete King

International Journal of Playwork Practice

Adventure playgrounds have been a feature in the United Kingdom since the 1950s. Their growth and development was underpinned by ‘thinking together’, a concept in the Communities of Practice (CoP) approach. In March 2020, the United Kingdom (UK) went into lockdown. This study aimed to find out how adventure playgrounds responded to the Covid-19 situation when they reopened in July 2020. Semi-structured interviews were undertaken with 18 adventure playground staff from 14 adventure playgrounds. Thematic analysis of the data constructed themes and sub-themes within four main headings: preparation for opening; reduction; targeted service and play behaviour. The results showed how ...

Rekonceptualizmi I Hapësirës Urbane Përmes Qasjes Minimalistike, Dardan Paloka Sep 2021

Rekonceptualizmi I Hapësirës Urbane Përmes Qasjes Minimalistike, Dardan Paloka

Theses and Dissertations

Zonat urbane janë një grup i ndërtimeve dhe hapësirave me aktiviteteve të ndryshme. Hapesirat e zbrazëta ndërmjet strukturave të këtyre ndërtimeve, shpesh shihen si efekt anësor, dhe mbesin te neglizhuara. Ky fenomen i gabur shfaqet si shkak i planifikimit të gabuar, menaxhimit të dobët të hapësirës ndërtimore, dhe koordinimit të dobët të ndërtesave me njëra tjetrën. Për shkak të mungesës së funksionit në këto hapësira, qytetarët tentojnë t'i përceptojnë si hapësira të vdekura dhe të pamundshme për tu shfrytëzuar¹. Duke marrur parasysh kërkesat e mëdha në qytet për hapësira të lira ku mund të mundësohet banimi, humbja e potencialit ...


Banim Individual – Vilë Banimi, Mergim Kukaj Sep 2021

Banim Individual – Vilë Banimi, Mergim Kukaj

Theses and Dissertations

Në kuptimin etimologjik fjala Vilë rrjedh nga Italishtja villa, respektivisht nga Latinishtja villae = shtëpi rurale/ fshati e përcjelle me ndërtesa ferme. Kuptimi, definimi dhe konceptimi i Vilës si objekt dhe entitet gjeografik është zhvilluar dhe ka ndryshuar në kohë dhe hapësirë: - (veçanërisht në Evropën kontinentale) Një rezidencë/ shtëpi fshati e madhe dhe luksoze - Një shtëpi e madhe fshati e epokës Romake, që posedon pronë dhe përbëhet nga ferma dhe ndërtesat e banimit të kompozuara rreth një oborri të brendshëm.

Qysh nga antikiteti Vila ka siguruar një “arratisje” përfundimtare nga stresi i punës dhe ritmi tensionuar i jetës në qytet. Kjo ...
