Author(s):  Azad Mitra, Soltani Mohamadi Mehdi
The awning is one of the architectural elements of the urban spaces of Iran, which is still found in many historical cities such as Nain. Based on the studies carried out up to now, there are not research which done to examine the historical texture awning in Nain and especially the typological analysis of these valuable elements. Therefore, the present study first examines the typology of the Nain awnings. For this purpose, firstly, theories existing in the typology discourse were investigated and architectural theory that is a multi-dimensional schema composed of physical organs and combined schema of organs were appropriately recognized. Accordingly, the present study has studied 15 awnings of Nain historical texture and will try to provide a proper type-classification based on this theory. The data collection method is library-field method with deep interviews and research method is qualitative with an analytical-descriptive approach. Establishing the awning on passage leads to the creation of space and the high-level application of passage, and this space created at the high surface of passage by the awning is limited to the owner of the two bodies of passage, and therefore belongs to two owners located on both sides of the passage. The typological findings show two types of awnings. The first type is with the highest percentage of frequency, without architectural spaces, and only covering the passage. The second type of awning, although all have room spatial organs or porch on the passage as a common schema but according to how these elements are combined, the orientation of the awning, as well as the different life which was in each case, is divided into three awnings including awning having room with openings in two facades, awning with a combination of a room and a porch in a one facade, and awning having porch in two faç ade. Based on the results of oral studies in relation to the kinship relationship or lack of kinship relationship scheme of awnings owners, in the first type, the kinship owners of the two sides of the passage belong to a family, and with the establishment of the awning, the entrance of the houses is also installed below awning. In the second type, awning ownership belongs to one of the parties with the consent and agreement of the owners of the two sides of the passage that have not kinship relationship to each other.
