Résumé
The study concerns with planning and design criteria for development of settlements in the Arid Coastal Zones of Iran along the Persian Gulf, with special reference to Bandar Lengeh and Bandar Kong. The first chapter deals with Arid Coastal Zones in general, the Persian Islamic settlements on these zones and the impact of major factor influencing the built forms. The second chapter gives an idea about background of Iran, the regional context and the factual information available on climatical, geology, geographical and socio-economic aspects of the region. The third chapter is the study of physical and non-physical aspects of the two settlements. The physical studies are the outcome of six months field work at the site. It covers the planning and urban design studies of the two settlements. Chapter 4 deals with the evaluation of plans and programmes already proposed, to review their feasibility from implementation point of view. Chapter 5, deals with peculiar ecological consideration of Arid Coastal Zones,i.e, positive and negative impacts of floodways and runoff on the settlements. The surveys done by the author and the results are presented in chapter 3,4,and 5. The literature study of the already proposed Master plans lead to the identification of many problems evident in these zones which have been grouped together and are presented in chapter 6. Chapter 7 is devoted to the synthesis of planning criteria in relation to landuse and town structure. This information serves as a feed-in for the chapter 8 ; that addresses itself to the urban Design Criteria, Development and revitalization of these settlements. Chapter 9 brings out important conclusions and recommendation to highlight the achievement of the study
