All theories have basic claims that represent their ideas and principles and are announced through their written texts or speeches (discourses). They may be lead to many movements and applications, as in the architecture field, like “the architectural modernism movement" which is emanating from the modernism theory. The research problems are the weakness of testing methods and the weakness of checking the ideas credibility compared to the nature of the embodied product and its connection to the philosophical origin of the movement to which it belongs, (the gap between application and theory). Therefore, the research aims to add a mechanism to test the credibility of allegations and assesses the power of representation. its hypotheses assumes the mechanism depends on "making a comparison between what the architectural idea claims and the level of its embodiment with the mother movement claims, on the other hand, any architectural product has claim that belongs to theory or an architectural movement and it must have an internal agenda to represent that identity.
