Abstract:   (1716 Views)
Any section or space in architecture that connects other sections or spaces called a joint. This research proposes using the word "Articulation" instead "Joint", on the basis of the etymology of both words. So in this abstract, the concept of "joint" is meant anywhere the word "Articulation" is mentioned. The present research deals with theoretical aspects of architecture. Its primary goal is to carry out an etymological analysis of the word "articulation", although an attempt is done to pave the way for achieving more ambitious goals in the future. They include exploring the nature of articulation and coming up with its design processes. The central argument of this research is that "an articulation is something more than a sheer connection". Since etymology makes up a major portion of this article, a documentary study is conducted, while methods of description and analysis are adopted to develop the study. Regarding an articulation as both connection and disjunction area is the starting point of the research. This will lead to a number of the most important findings of the present study. Articulation comes with harmony between different parts of a structure. It also gives meaning to the concept of "whole". Articulation has the potential to serve as the coordinating element in architecture. Articulatory components have to undergo appropriate changes to fit together and create balance.
