Abstract: 
This research was done on the basis of the assumption that the present structure of Yazd can be categorized on the basis of the per capita of the land utility and urban present structures. This could yield different patterns of physical development In this descriptive-analytical method, the physical growth and development dynamic of the city were inspected and different available patterns are identified.
The city of Yazd, in its 2000 year history before the modernism and capitalism era, has experienced the organic growth like the oldest cities of Iran. This growth pattern, in conformity with geography and logic of desert architecture, has presented a concise and integrated structure. In this pattern the urban land has had the traditional uses of the city. The new pattern of urban development appeared after the execution of the first urban comprehensive plan, contrary to the traditional patterns, have been executed from the land annexed extensively and out of a land utility plan.
Before the Islamic Revolution, these patterns were formed on the basis of development of urban borders and attracting the marginal villages and the lands and gardens. But after the revolution, they were expanded through private and governmental assigning and supplying the lands in the annexed limits. At present; Yazd is involved in a variety of patterns of physical development because of the annexations approved by the last urban plans and also supplying and assigning the lands which has caused the land to lose its versatility.
