Syntactic Analysis And Identification Of The Social Properties In Spatial Arrangements Of Buildings: The Case Of The Houses Called Diar Charpenti In Eastern Hodna, Algeria
This paper focuses on the spatial study of a new type of habitat which appeared in the past decade in an agro pastoral region of Algeria: the Eastern Hodna, a domestic habitat whose stylistic expressions are diverse and at the same time opposed to the local rural references. The goal is to know whether, contrary to the variety of its exogenous facades, this type of habitat is a homogeneous space scheme that could be identified as being architecturally genotype. The approach used is the syntactic analysis of Hillier and Hanson (1984, 1996, and 1998). It offers the possibility to identify the structures of the socio-cultural expression and social logic embodied in the spatial distribution of domestic forms.
