عنوان مقاله [English]
Visual axes are visual corridors that form along the linear openings like streets and are designed toward a significant element or strategic landscape. They also provide visual connection between two urban prominent areas. Urban walls, natural features and urban furniture can be used in designing urban axes. These axes have the main role in preservation and continuity of urban identity. Identity is a historical continuity which should be maintained by quantities that has been created in history. On the other hand , identity can’t be shared with the others. This means that every place has specific quantities according to its own independent entities that make urban spaces characters different from each other. Some actions like preservation, reconstruction and revitalization are needed for preservation and continuity of identity in urban visual axes that can lead to continuity and strengthening identity and increasing the sense of belonging in these axes if they are proper and well performed. Continued presence of people and creating a linear public space are results of people’s sense of belonging to an urban axis. Individuals and different social groups attend in this space and communicate to each other . In this regard, Avenue des Champs-Élysées and Conciliazione of Rome, as main urban axes with a specific history, are considered to survey their repairing actions according to maintain identity of the region. This research was conducted applying descriptive- analytic method and also by observation and library studies. It is hoped that the results of this study can help repairing actions to maintain the identity of urban visual axes.
