Abstract [en]

Moral and ethical concerns seem to emerge in the western societies current development regeneration; among the most visible recent changes of education, it is now inconceivable that the reduction of the educational activities to technical endeavor without ethical consideration is totally absurd. The theorists of the crisis of values , the illustrations of ethical questions, the traditions and to their modern aspirations, the multi-cultural society necessities, etc are issues which must be reconsidered in the sense of pedagogical concerns. Ethical issues, in general, are experiencing a revival in advanced modernized societies characterized by multi-cultural complexities. Education is one the main platforms of the mentioned regenerated interest of the discussion and it has been considered by all the involving actors in the pedagogic world that the process of education is a complex endeavor requiring several communicative competences. The eventual argument about professional ethics would cover the pedagogical relationship, the human qualities requirements in the teaching profession, justice and equity, etc. The mentioned communicative/relational dimensions have been being influenced by a wide range of various actors with whom the instructor/teacher interacts; the interactions which could lead to value-oriented dilemmas and conflicts and challenge the ability of the teachers’ ethical judgment.

Abstract [en]

The main objective of the current study is to proceed toward the potential of innovative regeneration derived from the local economy in Odlajan (a neighborhood in the historical district of Tehran, 12th municipal). In three steps we have addressed the subject; the first step consists of the concept of urban regeneration and the characteristics of the innovative economy associated with three basic categories (people, business and place). In the next feature, we have examined the objections of that the current status of the selected site; the unsustainable development, reduction of the sense of belonging, and un-sustainable regeneration. The third step, e have tried to define a prospect conceptual model based on innovative urban contribution including aforementioned aspects by short-term measures and long-term strategies.

Abstract [en]

The new education systems is currently living a paradigm shift in pedagogical approaches associated with the innovation in the fundamentals of teaching methods; we are facing an emerging necessity interconnected to learners’ attitudes, experiences and the general structure of digitalization and in our case, gamification. Taking gamification into consideration, it seems we still need to regenerate a sustainable codification of the new knowledge in the field of education; therefore, reconsideration of learning itself is essential which eventually reconstructs the educational programs and adapts new tools and technologies. Gamification and Serious Games draw a new perspective toward the processes and tools to achieve new objectives and methods in order to improve the quality of education. In this paper, we have developed a conceptual model of the mentioned adaptation which crystallizes the flow of the dominant gamification trends and its components in a comprehensive platform with a holistic approach in order to aggregate it into Serious Game definition; the concluded model would reflect an understanding of the role of mechanics and dynamics in the nature of the education. The result is a starting point for the integration of the developed conceptual framework to the establishment of a prospect model/platform of Serious Games in different educational branches.

Abstract [en]

Looking at the city in parts, the place theory can be recognized in the term of three main axes; good city form, sequential movement, and the mutual impact of every physical and social component. In the place theory the main focus is the understanding process of the cultural aspects and human characteristics of the places. Some areas experience mutual interaction between city and citizens more than others. It is evidently considerable from literature that the most successful examples toward space enhancement (or the transformation of space to place) have come from two approaches: Urban entrepreneurship (urban-preneur) and the small changes which result in big social impact; a sense of the tactical action. These two approaches, Tactical Urbanism as an effective formula for putting good ideas into practice, and “Urban-preneurs” while embed in their socio--ecological environments -cities and towns- to draw influence are about making the place (for citizens) toward a more interacting liv- able one. This report is dedicated to clarifying the question of how street city life might contribute to alternative urban futures focusing on the mentioned two approaches. To this purpose first, we describe the notions of Tactical Urbanism and Urban Entrepreneur main characteristics associated with aforementioned approaches, then the report continues with the concept of Sharing Economy and urban entrepreneurship term, which focuses on recent decades economy approaches. Next, the current scene in two selected case studies, 30Tir Street in Tehran and pedestrian street zone Rasht city in Gilan province has been investigated. As the third part, we have demonstrated a path to open a wide dispensary to some possible tactical “Urban-preneur” in selected case studies.

Abstract [en]

The importance of the Games has already been perceived for more than three decades by the use of computers in education as an aid in the process of knowledge construction. In Gamification, the game is dislocated from the distraction function, since it has influence in the sensory and cognitive development of the individual. The elements of the Gamification do not follow a specific rule or a standard, and can be applied in whole or in part of an educational process, remodeling of existing procedures in both theoretical tasks or practical procedures. Developing a gamification platform will depend on the purpose, available resources and cognitive pedagogical bases, since the concept tends to redefine the learning process, rescuing the interest and participation with a view to intellectual growth. The current architectural education methods in Iranian universities suffer from lack of coverage of methods both artistically and technologically; the mentioned methods are mostly following the traditional teacher-focused trainings.. Nowadays, considering the advancement of new educational technologies, one of the most fundamental issues facing the current educational systems would be the contextual innovation which seems to change the learning methods both in content and method. The new processes and methods have formed a new playground which makes it possible to take the next step and make a decision on the set of new tools, educational goals and quality of the courses in the discipline architecture. The method of teaching based on the gamification approaches is more effective than other educational methods but there must be a comprehensive platform accordingly. The current study extends the authors' prior work examining the possibility of the formulating a model-based integration of architectural design education with a gamified platform based on the associated literature and resulting in a comprehensive understanding of role games and serious games in the overall educational field. Finally, we have tried to shape the conceptual model of the platform as a framework for creating a followable pattern for regenerating a game-based architecture design education.

Abstract [en]

The current progress in the field of Building Informa on Modeling (BIM) and the new possibili es facilitated by IoT (Internet of Things) pla orms could contribute to the stream of the integra ng improvement of the knowledge-based built heritage management. In this paper, ُthe concept of integra on of BIM and IoT would appear as a process of coordina on of all phases under a proper knowledge-based strategic approach. The op mal provided model would eventually be essen al to integrate common sub-processes grounded on the developed BIM-IoT principles/model. The eventual model has been conceptualized through the correspondence of BIM with WSN (Wireless Sensors Network) as the central management brain of the opera on and maintenance of the buildings referring to the sustainability concept and conducts as a Knowledge Management System (KMS).

Abstract [en]

Architects and urban researchers have long held the view that the semantical analysis of “space syntax” and understanding physical and social dynamics of public spaces, play a vital role in the social and economic life of the social units and also the formation of public culture, the identity and the notion that could be called “sense of place”. Public spaces/places allow the citizens to have interaction with each other while meeting on the ostensibly ground in a planned and unplanned means. By definition, if we consider a "social urban place" as an integrated object, it will have a tendency to support the emotional expressions of the mentioned sense, including the human-oriented social common achievements, which in a way would eventually make our memories and life courses. In this sense, the crucial importance of the designing of public place/space as an integrated issue, related to the social identity and also the cultural intangible and tangible attitudes, would shape a confrontation strategy which could cause a dramatic change in the mentioned social units. In a broader approach, as many commentator also argue, the the underlying support of the sociability improvement is fundamentally developed by obtaining a comprehensive perception of “knowledge” associated with the city and its public spaces/places. While urban analysts and practitioners’ ideas differentiate in the sense of the approach toward the place/space, as a contextual phenomenon, they have generally accepted that without managing the mentioned “knowledge”, the corresponding data and information would be overloaded increasingly. Consequently the decision-making, the acceleration of the urban progress, stimulating cultural changes and the innovative attitudes etc. will encounter a significant failure risk; so that, abnormal resonance and chaos will occur over and over in the urban place/space. considering that there is no traceable regulating ground base/strategy in Iran to provide and improve urban-generated knowledge, based on social identity, particularly the practical management of the mentioned knowledge remain a major issue for the sociability improvement in urban public places/spaces. In order to respond to this gap, the current paper discusses the integrated identity factors in the management structure of urban public places. In order to achieve the mentioned purpose, in an analytic mode of understanding, we observe relationships between “space syntax” semantically; then, based on theoretical investigations and literature review we distinguish fundamental issues enhancing the identity and quality of place. As the result, we have presented a managerial method of the gained place identical knowledge in order to promote the sociability of public spaces. We have also examined the relationship between this public space and the associated social aspects and developed a perceptual semantic platform to manage the related knowledge of the place identity which is associated with the physical built environment. The conclusion contains a conceptual model representing a sociability-oriented knowledge management visualization of the public urban place/space  considering architectural identity factors.

Abstract [en]

There is a traceable current methodic shift in the field of “Architectural Design” which could be explained as the systematic interconnection of “scientific method” and “design methods” based on the objectives of the “structural logic” of Design; the prospect “systematic” approach would provide the designers/architects/Architecture-SMEs with a possible wide range of technological practical potentials to be deciphered to the operational facilitation in the associated enterprises. The mentioned structural logic could be characterized as a “design support” facilitation based on the “information processing and evaluation” for dealing with all aspects of the knowledge in the process as a Knowledge Management System (KMS) in the sense of improving the collaboration and enhancing the Knowledge Management (KM) process. Since the visual aspects of the design process, such as diagrams, contain a structure of natural cognitive “networks of relationships”, the “meaning” is situated between the linkages of the network which would be visually presented and actualized by the architectural artifact. The semantic associations would be a strategy-based approach of textual relationship between concepts and knowledge for the textual determination and source-target mapping as an effective tool in term of developing the knowledge mining computational analogy tools. In this paper, the main focus is the dynamicity- and creativity-oriented as a flow of knowledge exchange between the design actors in the knowledge-based architectural decisions. The required knowledge and information analysis in the conceptual phase and the related creative notions, beside the fact that concepts are verbal/textual/visually representable, emphasizes the need of a knowledge mapping as a reliable context for Conceptualization in architecture SMEs. The formalization/formulization of the design knowledge/information and the associated interaction/dynamicity based on the designers’ cognitive/creative attitude are still a field to be developed; in this paper, besides the emphasizing the importance of knowledge and its cognitive approaches, the integration of “systematic design approaches” and “knowledge-based systems”, in a semantic sense, have been illustrated. Eventually, the current paper indicates the foundation of a model of such a knowledge-based semantic manner using a review and thematic analysis method.

Abstract [en]

Taking into account the increasing urbanization in Europe, young people prefer bigger cities and eventually small towns face the challenge of aging and immigrant populations requiring evermore social services even as tax revenues decrease. It seems a necessity for the regional enterprises/authorities to revise their strategic vision in associated with the raising of awareness among the citizens and socio-economic stakeholders in the long-term strategies/priorities. Structuring a powerful approach toward the concept of attractiveness through a location-based assertiveness will not only be supported by the local public or community initiatives, but also through the resource-based theory to stablish new opportunities of public/private partnership in the locations. The concept community values, combining with the strategic vision of the local authority scenario would idealistically cause the raising of awareness among the citizens and socio-economic stakeholders in the scenario-based implementation of resilient of the long-term strategies/priorities; this path is capable also in a public mobilization for a sustainable collective action to sharing a purpose, a common fate in the sense of the evolution of socio-economic norms which eventually integrates the cultural, social, economic and environmental values with the “location”; this could be the platform for a model that shows location-based growth orientation aspects are in a profound interaction with what we call “place identity”. The main ambition of our paper is to look at location as a structured dynamism to support the diversification strategy of owner-managed local companies through literature-based approach to examine whether location, as a strategic resource, contributes to sustainable competitive advantage for companies. So our study contributes to the discussion of the importance of “location” as a factor for creating strategic resources that can create and/or contribute to the competitive advantage of enterprises mostly based on the regionalization strategies; this will promote the mobilization of local actors to develop the competitiveness and attractiveness of their territory, while stimulating a collaborative approach between the territories to expand their capacities. In the maturity phase the resource-based view developed to be a resource-based theory that must evolve in order to extend the maturity phase. As the resource-based view assumes that resources are heterogeneously distributed among companies, various factors [external and internal] explain how profitability can be created and maintained in the long term. We have applied an interdisciplinary grounded theory method by combining the literature-based data from studies of resource based strategies and urban discussion related to space/location; The evidence from some interviews with company leaders, owners, managers and influential representatives of various community activities and entities also helped us to run an inductive reasoning approach as a hypothetical clarification of the action(s) that recurrently determines the main apprehension of the accomplices in an applicable area.
