Title The Porous Formation in Contemperory Architecture
Creator Abbood, Attaa Hasan
Description The porosity is one of the concepts which is adopted in contemporaryarchitecture to enhance the production of innovative and uniquearchitectural configurations and forms. It is characterized by balanceand integration to achieve the best environmental, aesthetic andfunctional standards in the architectural building, in line with thetechnical and technological progress.The research problem was articulated as: the lack of comprehensiveframework, of porous formation in terms of its nature, characteristicsand rules of formation in contemporary architecture.The aim of research is to introduce this knowledge by adopting thedescriptive and analytical approach to a number of architectural studiesin order to identify the main vocabulary that define the porous formationand its application to a number of selected projects that distinguish it byinvesting in the porous formation.The research assumed the adoption of different formations withmultiple and varied patterns according to various rules and mechanismsof formation.The research reached to a set of theoretical and practical conclusionsconcerning the methods and rules of the adoption of the porousformation at different levelsshads as environmental treatment.Key Words:Porosity, PorousFormation,Permeability,Transparency, Void,Space .
