A scientific research article titled “The Role of Images in Enriching the Aesthetic Taste” has been published in a magazine by the Canadian publishing house IIETA. The research authors are Dr. Hasanain Ali Saeed and Dr. Sarah Munther Abdel-Hamza, lecturers at the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Kufa.
The research explores the concept of image and visual culture, its relationship with aesthetic taste, and its impact on critical practices. The study aims to expand the knowledge base on the possibilities of inspiration and creativity in architectural criticism.
The research identified the most important foundations, rules, and visual elements that influence the image and its role in enriching the aesthetic taste of society and enriching contemporary architectural critical practices and their messages. The authors found a dynamic relationship between the main vocabulary of the research and these elements.
The research identified two main dimensions reflected in the image: the visual compositional dimension, which is represented by the aesthetic and expressive construction, and the semantic dimension, which is represented by the cultural meanings. These dimensions act as innovative reinforcement tools that raise the critic’s creative ability and enrich the recipient’s experience in architectural production.
