Abstract

For a long time, the sense of sight has been regarded as the greatest sense of the human being and it is the most powerful transitional sense which plays a significant role in understanding other emotions. On the other hand, according to the world-wide experience of the perception process and its results, there are some differences between the normal people and the blind people. This subject has been independently investigated by many researchers, but without the full attention of the blind perception processes and their associated mechanisms, no interventions and planning can be undertaken for the improvement of the environmental quality of this group. In this regard, in the form of an experimental activity, by writing a syllabus extracted from the curriculum and topics by the Ministry of Science's Planning Supreme Council and by applying appropriate and adaptable approaches to the physical condition of the blind students, basic architectural training is considered for them. The findings of this study were analyzed by inferential analysis of T-test through comparing the analysis of pre and post-tests of the training courses and then by analyzing the results and measuring the significance level of the results. The findings showed that using basic architectural training methods can have a significant effect on the quality and quantity of blind people's perception from the architectural spaces. Also, the results showed that through architectural teaching methods, the blind can participate in designing the public spaces specific for them.
