Abstract: 
This paper studies the transformation of Iranian-Islamic cities by considering Tabriz as an example of these cities. It also studies the effect of modernism on this transformation. For the explanation and analysis, the Determine, Wirth and Ewers Islamic cities model was used. This model was compared with the urban pattern of Tabriz. The general pattern of Iranian-Islamic city before and after modernism and its adoption to Tabriz city are considered. Also, the periods of Tabriz transformations and the modernist, national and regional influential factors are considered. The semi-modernist attempts like making streets and the demolition of the historical and traditional texture of the city up to 1340 produced some instability and disruption in Tabriz and slums were made in this period. From 1340 to 1370, farm reforms, the use of new building materials and technology as well as the third development program of the pre-revolution increased the urban population growth and the area of the city which brought some physical transformation of Tabriz. The first, second and third development programs have caused new transformations in Tabriz since 1340.
Finally, it can be concluded that contemporary and recent transformations of Iranian-Islamic cities (for example, Tabriz city) arise from the advent of modernism in economy, society, politics, culture, etc. These factors caused physical transformations of Tabriz city.
