  •  Hassan Khalili Zonouz    


City, identity, and urban landscape are interconnected with each other. Urban restoration is the final objective of the study and implementation of partitioning in historical contexts. The identity of city and its determining urban elements were always discussed while the urban passages are the most prominent elements in creating the historical context of urban landscape. The present study aimed at investigating the implementation of favorable partitions by considering vitality in historical contexts. This study analyzed the identity, originality, and partitioning to apply the principles defining a logical solution and creating the sense of belonging, collective memories, sense of place, and points related to environmental psychology in the historical contexts. Using some landscape architecture principles by considering some parameters such as originality, identity, and social-cultural elements can contribute to idealizing the identity partitioning to historical contexts and its adjacent points in urban areas. As a result, the identity concepts and parameters can interpret the partitions in terms of thought, design, and implementation of the principles used in the architecture.
