عنوان مقاله [English]
In response to the failure of modernist approach in the new urban ideas, attention to the public spaces in cities has become as a basic necessity in terms of planning and urban design. Study on the concept of urban space as a structural element in the cities, is developing and expanding. Multiple authors have done many studies in this area, and the results indicate that urban areas play a key role in the urban structure and life of its inhabitants while they have become paramount in increasing the integrity of the city. The main purpose of this study is forming a conceptual model of an integrated network for urban spaces in the process of decision-making. Undoubtedly, such networks which strengthen
the structure of city and make it integrated; bring about the socio-economic growth and prosperity for inhabitant. Therefore, the present study seeks to explore the factors influencing the interconnected urban spaces network in addition to propose a conceptual model for shaping it. The research is exploratoryexplanatory and uses meta-analysis method for its planning process. Moreover, for analytical evaluation of case model, F’ANP model is employed. The main approach in this analysis is based on the movement of “new urbanism”. The research results reveal that urban spaces are located in a logic network in form of transects in order to achieve spatial integrity, continuity in the transverse sections of the city must be maintained, which is provided in the form of a continuity matrix. Summing up, in compare with the different researchers views, 9 indexes of spatial integrity were obtained include combination of social, functional, physical and visual aspects of theorists.
