  • Abstract:
    In today's world, interactive architecture is a process-oriented guide to creating dynamic spaces capable of performing a range of pragmatic and humanistic functions. While this architecture is evolving rapidly, its implementation in some developing countries is not very feasible. Iran is one of the developing countries that is seeking to learn more about use of new technologies in the construction industry to create new ideas for the future of architecture. Tehran as the capital of Iran has the proper capacities for implementing interactive architecture. Due to the main focus of the research on the future of interactive technologies in Tehran and to benefit from expert views, the Delphi method was used to collect the required information. According to the new concept of interactive architecture in Tehran, purposeful sampling was applied and only experts who have sufficient expertise in both interactive architecture and contemporary Iranian architecture were selected to respond. After collecting the responses in the questionnaire, they were converted to numerical scales to analyse the impact of the different factors in the future of Tehran's architecture. Results show that in Tehran, in the three main areas of technology, economy and culture, constraints exist for the implementation of real interactive architecture. © Penerbit Universiti Sains Malaysia, 2019.
