عنوان مقاله [English]
While in the past the limited area of cities and ease of access of inhabitants to the surroundings had caused green spaces to have their manifestations mainly in activities concerning beauty and appearance of urban areas, today, owing to reasons such as population growth, physical growth of cities, development of industry and vehicles and the consequent environmental pollutions, such spaces are paid serious attention as organs of cities’ breathing. In many architectural texts, green space is considered as one of the important criteria of quality of human-made environments. Based on such belief, this article discusses topics such as scientific definition of green space, standards, patterns and regulations recommended by well-known thinkers as well as standards confirmed by the Ministry of Housing and Urbanization and various applications of green space, especially its role in physical development of cities.
It is hoped that this article will be useful for readers in line with quantitative and qualitative development of such spaces.
