Background and Objectives:Visual expression techniques play an important role in providing technical information in the design process of architecture, but this way of expressing the image that is common in the West is not in accordance with our past architectural look. The perception of space in past architecture was not human-centered. So, if we are to seek a generalized approach and to conform to an ontological-based view of Islamic-Iranian wisdom, one can ask the principles of mapping the Iranian documentary image architecture in the past.
In this study, the attitude of Iranian artists to space in the painting environment on the one hand and the history of perspective and the principles of perspective drawing on the other hand have been studied. It is expected that by examining this view of space and expanding it in the intellectual framework of Islamic wisdom and by examining the status of two elements of time and place in the intellectual space of these two worlds, the point of difference between the two views of the West and Iran to space is identified.
Methods: On the one hand, this study uses a descriptive-analytical method to study the attitudes of Iranian artists to space in a gallery environment and on the other hand, expands intellectual framework of Islamic wisdom. Understanding this insight in the Iranian intellectual and cultural sphere can be interpreted in the form of colloquialism in the presentation of drawing documents.
Findings: In this regard, the hyper-process method as a graphing approach with the approach of increasing the points of escape and displacement of the lines is introduced; and consequently the field of view and motion from the mere point of view of spatial representation in the field of architectural drawings is increased.
Conclusion: Considering the place of spatial drawings in the process of architectural design and teaching how to draw perspectives in basic courses with architecture students, as well as the importance of familiarizing architecture students with the principles of visual expression and related drawing methods, this study Introduces and suggests it for presentation to architecture students. The hyper-process method tries to have a functional interpretation of the perfectionist worldview of the Iranian artist (as it was before). This method allows the image of all spatial details in one frame and creates a suitable spatial impression in the viewer and facilitates the understanding of architectural space in the architectural design process. It is also possible to teach this method based on the principles and rules governing linear perspective in a way that is understandable to architecture students.
