Abstract

Considering the architectural context and the design data and culture and identity of any region are the primary tools of the architects in the design process and redefine the original design approach. This has led to a wider manifestation of design options and ultimately a more successful evaluation of the way. At present, disregard for the context of the design is common in many designs activities, which undermines the architectural identity of the buildings in each territory, and thus leads to a nondescription and chaos in the urban context. In this regard, one of the main challenges for designers is to make connections between concepts derived from the cultural context in relation to global issues. This research used library resources and an analytic-descriptive approach to study the impact of context on architectural designs and also addressed the factors influencing contextualist architectural design and cultural contextualization features in Persian Gulf region. In order to understand the methods and how to create a purposeful interaction with the context, this research explored the components of cultural contextualism in the architectural planning and design system of Islamic countries with emphasis on the Persian Gulf region. Applying cultural contextual factors to the design of buildings in three areas of spirituality, creativity and heritage can create a cohesion and harmony between buildings with the identity and culture of any region.
