one of the important goals of structural education in the field of architectural engineering is the implementation of structural knowledge in the process of architectural design according to improve the quality and efficiency of architectural designs. Achieving this goal requires educational planning to transfer the learning of structural teachings from the educational position to the architectural design position. The implementation of knowledge is the best point in transfer of learning and means the creation of new procedures for solving unfamiliar problems. According to Bloom's theory, Taxonomy of educational objectives, which is a theory in the field of educational planning, implementation is a level of cognition that is closely related to the cognitive level of creation and design and is based on a combination of proposition, concept and procedure Knowledge dimensions. This research, based on Bloom's theory, has presented a theoretical model of meaningful structural learning versus Rote learning in architectural design. The theoretical model of meaningful structural learning is about structural educational planning in the field of architectural engineering. This model explains the dimensions of process cognition of structure from Remember to Implementation in the process of architectural design, and describes the process of recognizing and knowing the dimensions of the structure in architectural design. Research results show that Propositional, conceptual and procedural knowledge are the dimensions of structural knowledge that are constructed in the process of cognition of structure, and become effective knowledge in design. Another finding of this study is that Geometric understanding of structures is a conceptual knowledge and an intermediate link between structural cognition and architectural design that can be effective in the implementation of structural knowledge in the architectural design process. This research has been done by collecting documentary-library data and logical reasoning method based on Revised Bloom's Taxonomy and theories in the field of design thinking with a cognitive approach.
