Hamidreza Ahmadi, Reza Jafarpour Hadie Kiashari


Urban landscape is one of the most important issues and issues of interest to architects, planners and urban planners. Hence, the urban landscape is a concept beyond an urban planning and design problem, and primarily includes human goals and social interactions between people and people with the city. Therefore, at the outset, is an objective that is due to quality the emergence of physical factors of the environment is present, but gradually, due to the historical conditions and the repetition of it against the group of perceptive humans. It becomes a kind of mental aspect and becomes a common element of the linking of the people of the community. On the other hand, art is closely linked to human life, and its wisdom is woven from human experience and always seeks to establish a relationship between men and his transcendental needs. In this context, one of the main attractions of Iranian art during various periods of history is Iranian architecture and gardening. However, today, the advancement of technology, modernization and the growing trend of Western culture in our society have greatly affected the art and architecture of this land. As it is no longer a trace of the color of Iranian art in the city, especially in its architecture and urbanization. Particularly the design of urban green spaces and parks, generally based on the European park design and decorative design and design, and has no link with the rich archetypes of Iranian art and architecture. On the other hand, urban parks and green spaces are one of the most important elements and elements of the city and dynamic institutions and play a major role in the urban structure and urban structure, and their absence can seriously undermine sustainable development. In addition, the future life of each city, therefore, green spaces as the focal points and concentration of activity are one of the important indicators of urban development, which is very high in metropolises with numerous environmental and social problems. Thus, the purpose of this paper is, to explain the process of achieving and creating a sustainable urban landscape with dynamic and community based applications by restoring the spirit of Persian historical gardens. Introducing people to the latest news and developments of art, and eliminating the minimum need for educational space, recreation and culture, which is a new and unique approach in its kind.
