Abstract

The present article is intended to analyze the status of architectural education during two periods
before and after Cultural Revolution in Iran and in order to interpret approaches and paradigms, methods, and way of its
development thereby, it deals with criticism of current situation in the field of architectural education. For this purpose,
it has been tried to separate different fields of quantitative and qualitative development of the discussed subject with
historical review on formation of architectural academic schools during recent period. The methodology of current
research is based on using the relevant information about structure of architectural education in Iran during two major
periods, which have been subjected to data- mining by taking an interpretative- historical approach. In addition, the
present condition has been criticized with review on the existing theories in this field and afterwards in order to achieve
the given result and for conclusion of the contemporary attitudes in Iranian architectural education. Findings have
been analyzed according to strategic analysis to disambiguate the process of planning for the future based on internal
strong and weak point as well as external opportunities and threats (SWOT) in educational structure of architecture and
eventually following to evaluation of today status and position becomes available for access in the future.
