Fractal Rhythm in Architecture Study in Baghdad Traditional Houses


Rhythm is one of the important principles in analyze and synthesis of forms. This concept in its associationwith attritions produces simple, interval hidden rhythm within Euclidean geometry. In non- Euclideangeometry and Chaos theory with their properties like self-similarity, scaling and fractal dimension theconcept of Rhythm was describe as relaying between order and surprise. Previous literature interpretedfractal Rhythm in respect to famous Paintings and some of pioneer architects works but this concept remainunknown in Traditional building. The research problem constrain on the lake of information aboutFractal Rhythm in Traditional Houses in particular. The research objective is to explore the mainaspects and principles of Fractal Rhythm in traditional building in Baghdad (in Al-Kadhimiya district).Research methodology depended on :First, develop theoretical framework second, determine measurementby adapting music as a Source of Fractal Rhythms as well as determine the main variables and case study,Third: drive finding and conclusion . The main conclusion is the order and Fractal rhythm of traditionalhouses more close to nature fractal structure, it is active more than statics, this activeness and changeabilitywill not lead the whole structure to the creation of a state of confusion mess or disorder.
