A Study of Spontanaous Architecture Environmental Characteristics and Treatments in Hot Dry Regions and Their re-application in Contemporary Architecture Using Green Technology
For centuries, spontaneous architecture has been able to harmonize with environmental conditions through the experiences that the innovators of this architecture have acquired through successive epochs, during which a large amount of experiences resulting from subjective experience accumulated between an error and correction. This has contributed to understanding the nature of the environmental surrounding, producing urbanism, such as the result of direct interaction with environmental conditions, and the ability to adapt with them.
The research tackles the spontaneous architecture environmental characteristics and treatments as a reference and experimental model that helps us to achieve contemporary architecture adapting to its environmental surrounding through re-applying those characteristics and treatments by using modern technology, so architecture can efficiently perform its functions, and the society can accept it. This is what the research paper seeks to achieve by monitoring environmental characteristics and treatments, and introducing their applications by using green technology.
The research includes environmental characteristics and treatments of spontaneous architecture at the level of urban fabric and at the level of building blocks, while presenting a model for one of the contemporary architecture projects that uses these characteristics and treatments by technological means, with the aim of emphasizing the possibility of applying these treatments in contemporary architecture.
The research concludes with a set of results, the most important of which is the possibility of applying spontaneous architecture treatments in contemporary architecture by modern technology that gives these treatments additional dimensions that have contributed to raising its efficiency without any conflict. The research recommends the importance of re-studying environmental characteristics and treatments and re-applying them using green technology to achieve a contemporary architecture that is more adapting to its environment.
