Abstract


One of the common problems of the contemporary urbanization worldwide has its origins in its excessive loyalty to the vehicular movement overlooking the maintenance and organization of walkways spaces and pedestrian movement. This, it turn, has led to the disintegration of the social and cultural and visual values in the urban spaces and the decrease of its performance and efficiency. It is noteworthy that the presence of pedestrians in the cities is advantageous to enhancing the social interactions of the citizens. To design paths conforming to the pedestrian movement in the urban fabric, due to their public use, requires flexibility, variation in the activities and spaces, the provision of urban safety and sense of belonging to the space the same factors which will consequently result in the promotion of the quality of the routes, the enhancement of social relations and interactions and the flourishing of the urban life. This research intends to study the enhancement of the urban space by pedestrian grid design using space syntax technique in the historical neighborhood of Jolfa, the Armenian quarter in the city of Isfahan (Iran).

Author Keywords: Isfahan, Urbanization, Safety, Pedestrian Grid Design, Armenian quarter.
