Abstract

Contextuality is one of the main issues in urban architectural design. The addition of new non-context construction is likely to reduce the urbanized features. An infill design is needed as one of the maintenance strategies. This strategy is found to focus more on the heritage buildings unobserved in ordinary architecture. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate the contextualization of designs in an urban setting, using the infill architecture strategy. A semi-systematic literature review was used through the exploration of Google Scholar and ScienceDirect within the last five years, where 30 articles were found and analytically explored to determine the main elements and methods of infill architecture. The results showed that this strategy was based on material and details, form, scale, place, position, and usage. Besides the maintenance of contextuality, innovation was also observed through a creative combination of building elements and infill methods.
