عنوان مقاله [English]
City views and people’s lifestyle change with the invention of personal cars and their over and over production. After that, urban cities which were defined based on the humanity scale, the slow motion of pedestrian and also his understanding level, designed due to the vehicles scales , their speeds and understanding level from inside of the cars. Gradually, the existence of human as a major member of urban space was forgotten and his need to the peace and safety was ignored. Statistically, the high number of pedestrian’s death is the result of vehicle dominance on our urban areas. The research methodology of this study is descriptive-analytical. The required information has been gathered through the documentation and questionnaires. In this research we consider and compare formation and quality of paths and sidewalks in HaftHose and Moghaddam neighborhood in 17 municipality of Tehran. Evaluations show that pedestrian rights and appropriate paths designs in a stable area like Haft Hoze have been suitably considered by urban designers so that acceptable condition has been provided for pedestrian walking while breaking pedestrian rights still clearly observe in Moghadam neighborhood. This component seems to be a forgotten element in formation of sidewalks in the neighborhood. Moghadam neighborhood is intensely in need of walking as well as creational space for residents and the reason is existence of small size homes (fine textured applications), old and highly dense urban texture, utilization of non-standard construction materials in buildings, and green space shortage.
