Abstract: In the architectural designing process of a building with the city's climate condition knowledge architecture in a specific period, space design patterns can be utilised to raise the welfare of residents. Utilising the data of 30 years of meteorology, climate studies results and Mahoney tables, this study examines the architecture compatible with the climate of this city, which is among the cold and historical cities of Iran. The research method is extracting the meteorology data and their analysis in the relevant tables. The research's method and nature are practical and it has been conducted to optimise buildings. In the end, architectural designing approaches for the construction of buildings, configuration, materials for construction and the level of temperature in a year, as well as the inactive architectural approaches for the supply and improvement of construction in Hamadan, have been provided.

Keywords: architecture analysis; Mahoney tables; bioclimatic design; Hamadan; Iran.
