Abstract

The “product” of architecture, as something that is created by the architect in a “design process”, along with other effective materialistic and environmental factors, depends on the worldview of the architect as the pioneer and director of the process. In fact, the architect‟s definition of human being and his aspects of existence on one hand and his needs and objectives on the other, determine “how” and “in what direction” the design process will proceed. It also reveals how the data intended for designing will be gathered, and “for achieving what goals” and “meeting what needs” they are processed. The present enquiry is an attempt to investigate how the character and characteristics of the architect‟s worldview will affect the steps and characteristics of the design process. Therefore, first, an architectural design process will be established step by step, and then, the effects of the worldview on them will be studied; and consequently the components influenced by the worldview will be analyzed. Based on the nature of this paper, the descriptive-analytical methodology and inductive reasoning were used. Also, the required data were gathered by desk study.
