ABSTRACT

Worn out textures are considered as one of the main problems of Iranian cities. Apart from factors impacting the exhausted parts, this problem accelerates the urban difficulties in many cities and towns of Iran. It also is considered as a barrier for sustainable urban development. Worn out textures have created many problems for
urban authorities as well as residents, so, it would be necessary to take them into account for more considerations. The present research is an attempt to recognize the worn out textures and spatial organization of Saqez city located at Kurdistan province of
Iran, in order to show some strategies for reducing the problems face people and urban managers of Saqez.

The method applied in this study is a descriptive-analytical method which bases on both documentary and field-based collection of data. Using existing maps, ArcGIS software, and MS Excel the visual capacity of data is enhanced. Then some analyses have been
done based on field work and observations.
The present study is an attempt to introduce causes of triteness and its socio-spatial consequences. Based on internal development policies and their functions in re-existing the worn out and insufficient urban textures, this research poses some scientific and
practical suggestions to improve the spatial conditions of the study area and maximizing peoples’ participatory motivations for reconstructing the exhausted textures of Saqez city.

One of the final results of present study is introducing an interference map model which focuses on: enhancing the resistance of buildings inside the beaten areas, reducing the natural threats, increasing repopulation and population density of exhausted areas,
improving the quantity and quality of transportation network, reordering the movement of cars and pedestrians, expanding public transport, and minimizing the number of private vehicles within the worn out areas.

Keywords: Spatial organization, worn out textures, Saqez city, Geographical Information Systems (GIS).
