Abstract

The innate tendency of humans towards nature has made them pay specific attention to this issue in different fields, and particularly architecture. This study was conducted to recognize common components of biophilic architecture and local architecture and analyze their impacts on helping designing something with sustainable local identity. As the local identity of an architectural work can play a key role in creating new works, emphasizing common components of local and biophilic design can help not only the sustainability of work but also the physical and mental health of individuals. In this applied research, research questions were answered using architectural design models in combination with biophilic design components affecting space localization. Data collection was done using the library method, field observations, and using a questionnaire. After analysis of the questionnaires, common components of local and biophilic architectures were introduced. Then, the data were measured in Shiraz Enghelab Bazaar as a sample business center the results showed that in terms of the effect of all common components of local and biophilic architecture on the local identity of a business center, three components including nature-environment harmony, natural facilities of the environment, and climatic conditions had the most effects on the sustainable local identity of a business center respectively.
