Farhad Ahmadi *
Abstract:   (11913 Views)
This article tries to discuss the characteristics of traditional architecture across Iranian plateau from a different point of view. Accordingly, the slow tempo of time in traditional era will be argued, a tempo by means of which the actions have been followed with more separation than usual and with more patience, forbearance, and tolerance. In other words, it is articulated that the actions are actualized not in their abstract form but in the context of the rituals. Hence, the slow tempo of these actions reduces the side-effects of harsh environmental changes and leads to a balance with nature in a manner that the alterations made to it do not result in any wastage. Furthermore, the effects of separation, whether as a conceptual notion or as a practical phenomenon in residences, will be discussed and their examples, from macro (polis) to micro (building), will be mentioned.
