عنوان مقاله [English]
Iranian cities enjoyed a particular identity and character in the past while currently, the collapse of the identity, especially in the old centers and historical contexts of the cities, is one of the main concerns of the design. Due to the formation of mental images and clear and accurate cognitive maps of the environment throughout history, it is considered a tool to achieve internal representation of the environment. The current study was conducted to deduce the perceptual similarities and their effect on the physical identity of the neighborhood to the adaptation of the physical identity of four districts of the Davachi Neighborhood to the citizens’ cognitive maps. The current study was analytical-descriptive research. The information collection methods were library and field research, the questionnaire, and the cognitive mapping technique. To analyze the data, the statistical-analytical methods, such as Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and overlapping cognitive maps to deduce the findings. The research findings indicated the effect of the cognitive map elements in shaping the physical identity of the neighborhood. The received score of the elements of the cognitive maps in the formation of the mental images in Davachi 3, Davachi 1, Davachi 4, and Davachi 2 districts, respectively, were consistent with the urban experts’ scoring to the components of the physical identity in four districts of the neighborhood. Studying the cognitive maps in the formation of the neighborhood is an introduction for the managers, urban planners, decision-makers, and whoever plays a role in the construction of the city to build a city whose identity features are desirable and responsive.
