Neighborhood is an ancient concept that has been ignored widely during recent years. This concept has been influenced from social, economical, cultural, religious and political movements. The basis of neighborhood system in Iranian cities was far from modern planning ideas. In the other word, neighborhood was a fruit of a logical connection between economical, social, cultural, geographical and natural traditions.
Iranian traditional Neighborhood is suffering from many problems and started to decline in the recent years. It caused by ignorance of functions and roles of neighborhood in city life. Although we can not back to our ancient neighborhood organization but we can pay more attention to regeneration of Iranian neighborhood concept .It is interesting if we know that urban planning and design theories of this century use our ancient and old neighborhood concept.
Isfahan city as the case study of this research has been a place to live logically and sustainable. But nowadays it continues to its sprawl without any thinking and effective planning. This research tries to find suitable policies and strategies to solve neighborhood problems in Iranian traditional cities in a way that it finished with regeneration of neighborhood concept.
