Abstract

Nowadays, westernization is a phenomenon that cannot be ignored in our academic architectural culture in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, although it is a pattern of modernization, but it drives the ego towards otherness. The Study proceeds from the question of this phenomena mechanism in architecture pedagogical. Architectural theories relevant to this phenomenon give a separate description, which creates a knowledge gap in westernization study in architectural pedagogical. Through the method of research, we enable to diagnose the basic mechanism of the problem related to this phenomenon, based on this, the theory of research related to the westernization phenomenon is formulated. The theoretical and hypothetical results of research support that westernization as a phenomenon in architectural pedagogical in Kurdistan region is formed through two basic mechanisms linked to each other's which are the metaphor and the subjectivity of the designers, westernization gives force to support otherness and seeking to remove the ego.

Keywords: westernization, design ideas, metaphor, architectural subjectivity
