Destructive process of Tehran’s river valleys and unsuccessful experiences in different cases indicate the lack of proper understanding and misuse of the capacities and potentials of these river valleys. Darakeh river valley is one of the seven valuable river valleys in Tehran as well as one of the main and natural corridors located on the foothills of Alborz Mountains. Darakeh River Valley is composed of three components of water, plant and architectural pieces. The essential companionship of these three components expresses the natural and vernacular structure of Darakeh river Valley. Route of the river alongside valley’s thalweg and formation of trees and plants along it and presence of architectural pieces at the end of the river path, shape the main configuration of Darakeh river valley.
The Iranian Shaarbagh hypothesis, which was presented by Mahdi Shaybani and Maryam Esmaeil Dokht in landscape Magazine No. 33 in 2013, iterated the elements for Shaarbagh's paradigm that the water, plant, and architectural pieces were introduced as the main components of Shaarbagh’s configuration.
It seems that the components of Iranian Shaarbagh can be the model for the formation of the river valley, which water, plant (gardens of Darakeh) and the architectural pieces (the village of Darakeh) are shaped in a linear structure and along the river path. According to natural context and river path, the figure of the Darakeh’s gardens and the architectural pieces (village of Darakeh) following the paradigm of Iranian Shaarbagh.
This research seeks to develop a future theory for Darakeh River Valley and by studying the Iranian Shaarbagh paradigm and its adaptation to the landscaping elements of the river valley, it concludes the issue which Iranian Shaarbagh paradigm is the basis for Darakeh river valley and it is possible to apply this theory in the future development of this river valley.
