Abstract:   (2471 Views)
The intertextual reading of narrating the life with the experience of space in the inner layers of mind and emphasizing the unconscious memories is a mental cognition method of the past architecture. In this paper the architecture of Iranian introverted houses has been interpreted based on mentality scheme and the Mobius theory. The nature of Mobius strip spread out inseparable layers and traverses the inward-outward path simultaneously. It is a long soft rectangular strip that is obtained by wrapping and connecting the two ends. The Mobius strip’s start and finish will be same, so the movement on it will be repeated infinitely.
The purpose of mental interpretation of architecture is to face the deepest layers of existence and to re-learn the identity we have forgotten. The starting point in the deepest layers of existence is the point that we will return to after the inward and outward path. The concept of home is defined as the starting point for moving into the deep center of existence, in which the study interprets the architecture of the house by emphasizing the experience of space from the mental perspective of the dwellers or guests present in these spaces, without judgment and with intertextual reading.
This study uses qualitative research strategy to interpret the past architecture subjectively. It also seeks first-hand information by exploratory-interpretive library studies about "In-Between Reality" in the empty space of the house and its role in arousing the hidden layers of the mind. The study specifically examines the relationship between the subject's mental perspective as a dependent variable and the internal domain of the home as independent variables. The analysis is done semantically, which explores the intrinsic possibilities of the text and the epistemology of home architecture. In order to complete the discussion in this article, the mentally hidden layers are adapted to the Mobius surface and provide a method for reading the architectural space by using narrative knowledge.
The conclusion of this paper shows that reading the narrative of life in Iranian introverted houses that is a method of architectural cognition will occur through the passage of time as the Mobius phenomenon passes through itself. Providing a way of interpreting the mentality scheme in architecture is possible through the epistemology of the concept of home and the discovery of the interior of the inhabitants as they move to the next level of existence. This is a profound transition to lost spirituality that requires internal transformation. Such insight is unusual for ordinary humans, but not inconceivable. The experience of meaning in architectural space in narrating the life Iranian houses further us into the Mobius-like path in the hidden layers of our minds. The end of this path leads to Mirror Vision- mirroring mystical intuition- in the philosophy of Suhrawardi.  Directing the path of the mind from inside to inside will increase one's ability to recognize and return to oneself.
