Texture density in neighborhoods, concentration of complex land uses and their proximity to each other are closely associated with sustainable urban forms. Today, with the increase of urban population, we are observing transformation and destruction of urban neighborhoods and a lot of old neighborhoods are being destroyed under the pretext of having timeworn texture and lack of accountability to our urban population. Tehran metropolis is no exception to this. Here we encounter two urban problems: First, uncontrolled urban dispersion and second, a huge amount of buildings which haven't any identification and have formed regardless of their field bed. Compact city is a model of sustainable cities and this is an efficient model to address the phenomenon of urban dispersion. In addition, the model emphasizes the focus on the neighborhood.
