The quality assessment and how the architecture works can be examined in a variety of ways. This article tries to address this issue from the perspective of the form, so that, while taking into account all aspects of the architectural product, they will provide indicators for this assessment.
The form, with all its features and components, encompasses all of the open and hidden concepts in architecture, hence the form can be considered as the main essence of the language of architecture. A language that passes through the path of time through its creators and users in the path of knowledge and will have a new identity and will be unidentified on a daily routine. This evaluation method focuses on the messages that come from the form and tries to examine all the functional elements and concepts in the product architecture by influencing its form and its effectiveness from the form, and by summarizing these components Comprehensive assessment of the product architecture. In addition, this method helps designer to assess the design of the product in the design process. Messages derived from the form can be received and understood in two dimensions:
Quantitative messages are called messages that are due to the effect of the function and the functional elements on the form, as well as how to use the form in dealing with the functional elements of the architecture. Functional elements can be divided into three parts:
1 Structurally functional elements of the building, which include structures, ventilation, mechanical installations, electrical installations, intelligent systems, and such elements.
2 Functional defining elements of space that start with basic uses such as residential, office, commercial, cultural complex, etc., extend beyond functional spaces such as entrance, hallway, meeting space, or any other functional space.
3 Environmental elements affecting such as climate, radiation, light radiation, air pollution, noise pollution, each of which can in some way affect its form and gender characteristics.
Qualitative messages are messages that represent the quality of space based on the overall product architecture and its relation to humans and the environment. The architectural product creates its own spatial and external relations in terms of its shape and gender, which can be They divided them into the following components:
1. The relationship between the outside and the inside is the degree of quality of space that is transmitted from the outside to the inside and vice versa from the inside space to the outside.
2. The external relation to the outside of the product of the architecture received from the outside space itself manifests itself and is mutually affecting itself.
3. The inner relation between the inside and the interior reveals the architecture received from the interior, and in turn influences the interior space itself.
By integrating the quantitative and qualitative messages of the architectural product and examining it in the context of formation, which is the same social, cultural and historical context of the product of architecture, a conception of an architectural product is made that may be identity or absurdity. May be remembered or forgotten. It may be meaningful or meaningless. It may be complex or explicit. It may be joyful or boring. It may be persistent or be eroded soon; it may look to the future, and it will create a new civilization or be repeated.
