چکیده [English]

Rapid urban population is widely known as the main inducement of growing cities in terms of quantity and variety in form. However, the city expansion entails physical challenges and it has profound impacts on the issue of urban morphology. It raises global awareness beyond the urbanism and includes sociology, psychology, economics as well as environmental studies due to the implications of broadness. The accentuation on morphological studies is on the grounds of fabric segregation in cities of developing countries where the patterns of modern developments are usually not in good agreement with traditional part. Causing several concerns, it urges morphological studies to attain urban fabric integrity. Therefore, this research aims to study morphology in respect to the form and subsequently proposes a framework of to-be-investigated indices. This study looks for identifying modules and excerpts of traditional core of cities in order to be fostered in future development and to make achievement of physical integration more viable. Having a conceptual-comparative approach, the study unveils the framework consists of urban paths and blocks in details of indices and items. It distinguishes seven indices for paths whereas the blocks have thirteen. Benefiting urban design and planning, setting a framework needs regulation and guideline for future development from morphological point of view and it could be applied for urban regeneration particularly from physical aspect.
