چکیده

In the process of time perception, humans continually try to find the link between the past,
present, and future periods. This matter becomes more important, when one tries to understand the events
and their outcome; both in the daily dialogue of humans and in the critical encounter with history. Truly,
how much do the current events affect our reading of the future? Or, to what extent can our expectation
from the future change the interpretation of past events? Thinking about such issues further illustrates
the importance of the concept of time. This article will answer the question: “What is the relationship
between the various types of concept of time in the daily life of the students and the definition that they
have achieved in the academic environment?” Our assumption is: “Although the patterns of daily behavior
of students can be the same, but the acquired commentary of architecture students to the concept of time
is different from each other; due to learning in architecture.” Also, the statistical population in this study
is the architecture students, and the architecture students of Qazvin Islamic Azad University (QIAU)
have been selected as a sample population. In the process of writing, first, the data collected in a logical
reasoning method determine the theoretical framework of the article; and then the research findings are
obtained with a survey approach and the questionnaire. Based on the results obtained, although the daily
life of architectural students demonstrates the high role of linear conception, the multi-active concept of
time has the highest impact on their critical view of architectural narratives, and on the student’s acquired
commentary. Such an approach leads students to a complex understanding of historical narratives.
