This paper aims to identify the values of the historical context of Kashan city (Iran) and apply them in its regeneration process, and develop planning methods based on international perspectives and local experiences in Iran. The values and features should be carefully examined by evaluation methods, allowing for the transmission of urban context values to the future. This study will use an appropriate methodology to achieve a validated document based on values and their indicators, allowing for regeneration of the Sarpelleh historic neighborhood. We have divided the purposes of the current research into two levels: First, identification of the values of the historic context of Kashan and then providing an appropriate compatible pattern with contemporary contextual values in different dimensions; second, focusing on designing a cultural and historical axis to represent the values that are compatible with contemporary needs. The outcomes of this research are a clear indication of the values of the Sarpelleh historic neighborhood in three main categories: (1) historical and social values; (2) environmental and physical values; and (3) economic values—the regeneration plans of which are proposed in three alternatives. Note that the proposed regeneration plan balances all of the identified values, without neglecting any of them. View Full-Text
