Aims: Contemporary architecture of Islamic countries as one of the common seasons of these countries, has always felt the lack of discourse between traditional and modern approaches to creating space in the design. So today's architecture has always been looking for creativity in the design process to make up for this shortage. Using the digital approach to redefining the process can help. In addition to beauty, decorations in Islamic architecture are the induction of concepts such as order and existential unity that are seen in the form of geometric and abstract motifs. Also, in Islamic teachings and the Holy Quran, a concept such as unity in multiplicity has been mentioned a lot. Redefining this concept with a digital approach to Islamic architecture decorations could be a new discourse between a traditional and a modern approach. In This study examine the role of digital approach in the manifestation of Islamic architectural decoration in the design process inspired by the teachings of the Holy Quran.
Methods: The research method that used in this study is "logical reasoning", using "analytical-descriptive" approaches with a qualitative approach.
Findings: The digital approach based on Bottom to Up method and focusing on the three areas of patterning and generative pattern, algorithm-coding, and digital fabrication redefine Islamic architectural decorations by changing the basic parameters and produces new patterns.
Conclusion: The fields of digital approach can design and produce Islamic teachings such as unity in multiplicity with geometric mathematical foundations in Islamic architectural decoration.
