Abstract: 

There exist some challenges between traditional urban planning and modern one during last decades. Imbalanced urban growth, lack of urban spatial organization, vacant lands around the cities, disproportionate per capita of land, improper urban population density, lack of coordination, low neighborhood’s security, increasing urban transportation costs and uneconomic nature of some of urban-infrastructures are being considered as most prominent urban problems. This in turn, requires the investigation regarding traditional urban planning as well as modern one in order to fully rehabilitate Iran-Islamic urban planning.
The major objective of this study is to investigate as well as to analyze Yazd’s urban planning patterns, with emphasis upon traditional patterns toward indigenous modern urban pattern corresponding with Iranian-Islamic culture.
As a matter of fact modern urban planning is based on traditional urban planning. This fact has been ignored in modern Yazd’s planning.
This in turn, has led to high energy consumption level, environmental pollution, lack of social coherences, lack of urban security as well as lack of identity in urban spaces.
The research method of this study is based on descriptive-analytical and survey approaches. In addition, Holder’s model and quarter distribution will be applied.
This study suggests that, modern urban planning not only is not against with traditional ones but also, they possess complementary nature toward indigeneuity and sustainability. In order to ameliorate urban problems, we have to stress on Iranian-Islamic structures.
This enhances the cultural legacies as well as environmental standards.
