چکیده

یکی از مباحث مطرح در شهرسازی معاصر، شهر دوستدار کودک می باشد که در آن ویژگی های کودک و نیازهای آن در نظر گرفته می شود. حضور کودکان در عرصه های همگانی اهمیت بسیاری دارد و موجب اجتماع پذیری آنها خواهد شد. نورپردازی یکی از عواملی است که امکان تداوم حضور کودکان را در عرصه های همگانی امکان پذیر می سازد. نورپردازی بهتر، امنیت بیشتر و لذت از بازی و به تبع آن حضورپذیری گسترده تر کودکان را به دنبال خواهد داشت. حضور بیشتر آن ها در عرصه های همگانی موجبات اجتماع پذیری را تسهیل می کند که خود زمینه ی مناسبی برای حضور کودکان امروز در سازندگی فردای کشور می شود. این مقاله با هدف درک شرایط زمین بازی کودکان در داخل پارک های شهری در ارتباط با نورپردازی و راهکاریابی برای حل مسائل احتمالی تدوین شده است. در پژوهش فوق از شیوه ی مطالعات اسنادی، مشاهده و مصاحبه با کودکان و والدین آن ها برای درک رابطه ی بین حضور کودکان در عرصه های همگانی و نورپردازی با مورد کاوی پارک فدک تهران استفاده شده است. با بررسی های میدانی انجام شده می توان نتیجه گیری کرد که نورپردازی مناسب می تواند باعث ارتقاء حس امنیت در کودکان و والدین آن ها شود و بالتبع حضور، حضورپذیری و اجتماع پذیری آن ها افزایش یابد.

چکیده [English]

Children are amongst the vulnerable strata of each society, as they are not capable of expressing their every need. Meanwhile understanding and paying attention to their desires is crucial and important for the future of both themselves and their society. Generally, children’s vital needs can be categorized as follows:
1. Physical care, that is a child’s need for home, food, clothing, and stuffs like that;
2. Need for support, that is a child’s need for support against hazards and difficulties;
3. Need for security, that is supporting the child and supervising his/her condition;
4. And emotional need, namely, the emotion and respect that a child needs in order to resist pressures.
Therefore, security is one of the important needs of a child and an influential factor in the presence of him/her in public realms. The presence of children in public spaces can promote their physical and mental growth. Many of the psychologists believe that learning, in early childhood, is attained through free playing. Although there is no exact definition for free playing, it can be characterized as acting unplanned, unpredictable, voluntarily, and full of joy. Designing appropriate playgrounds can increase the presence of children in such places. Studies indicate that places which are most desirable for children include their home, gardens, streets around the neighborhood, parks, playgrounds and sport fields. A playing area is a kind of dynamic urban space, which means it is located inside a park or another public place and is not private; in such places the social interactions between children happens at its highest level. Playing areas, as encourage independent functions, can create the context for generating diverse games (adventurous and group games, water and mud play, drawing, motion-physical games, playing with tools, drama
and social games, playing with ball, science games, playing with moving objects like bicycles, tricycles, and wagons, playing with natural elements, and …) appropriate for the age ranged from 1 to 6 at playgrounds in neighborhoods, and for the age range of to 6 to 15 at playgrounds in urban areas. According to Lynch, children learn more outside the
school and in society. In his view, this kind of education is being lost in our cities. Schools environments cannot completely quench children’s needs for various activities. Because, regrettably, in schooling tradition of Iranians’, the children’s activities are dominated by the school in such a specific way that no free playing is recognized appropriate for them. All activities which are done in schools, if any, are not free and are temporally limited. Child care centers in urban areas, despite their spatial restrictions, can host children for 2 or 3 years. Today, one of the main purposes of day care centers is to take care of children and educate them, and due to their limited spaces and facilities, less time is spent on free playing. Therefore, to deal with this important issue, we have investigated the effect of lighting in play spaces on the presence of children in such areas. For this purpose, a case  has been studied and an observation-based qualitative-quantitative method has been used. By interviewing about the presence of children and the factors affecting it, Fadak Park, located in the Municipality No. 8 of Tehran, has been examined. To do this, a documentary research approach were applied along with observational method and depth interviews. Then, 18 children were interviewed and to complete the research, also their parents were interviewed. Based on the theoretical saturation viewpoint, to prevent repetitive data, we limited the interview to 18 people and samples were selected randomly. To investigate the effects of lighting, we observed the Park on Sunday (uncrowded day) and Friday (crowded day) twice (once in the morning, and another time in the afternoon). Investigations show that one of the places in which learning can happen for children, are the public realms. Children’s learning in unofficial places increases due to the freedom of choice and discretion. Children can freely play in these areas and can be connected with their peers, with no temporal restriction. Thus, the presence of children in public areas, particularly in playgrounds, is of great importance, because they can interact with other children and play freely. On the other hand, the fear factor and night-time safety, are two influential elements which can decrease the presence of children in public spaces at night. Regarding the limitations and shortage of playgrounds for children, these areas must be altered to meet children’s needs. As the results of our investigations show, appropriate lighting can build a sense of security and safety in children and their parents, and subsequently result in an increased public presence and sociability.
