Persian Garden is one of the most significant symbols of Iranian architecture, which has been the result-of flow-based approach toward the environment. The Persian Garden is a glorious sample of design and regenerative development. The term "regeneration" describes the process by which a system of reconstruction, renewal, or regeneration incorporates its inherent resources and creates sustainable development. This sustainable development, links the needs of society to nature. Meanwhile, current available strategies in sustainability only investigate the state of ecosystems in the "present" time. This dilemma has caused the "sustainablity" approach to be expressed without focusing on "improvement of the past."
The regenerative theory has taken its core ideology from philosophical perspectives, which are based on "ecological" concepts, and, by strengthening its origins in social and environmental systems, it guides a wide range of concepts and approaches. The Persian Garden is a "unique network", "multilayer" product, and is "consisted of living systems within a geographical area"; This product is the result of a complex interaction of "time," "ecology" and "culture." The hypothesis of this research is that Shazdeh Garden reveals the concept of design and regenerative development. In this study, it has been tried to investigate that how Shazdeh Garden have represented the defined frameworks of regenerative development; Accordingly, the analytical framework of the LENSES has been used as an analytical-measurement tool, and evaluation worksheets were utilized in order to measure and evaluate the flows that have shaped the regenerative development in a multi-layered network as Persian Garden. Evaluating Shazdeh Garden with the LENSES executive framework leads to a deeper understanding of the environmental, economic, and socio-cultural situation. As most of the focal points in the regenerative flows of the Persian Garden are constructive, it can be stated that the initial hypothesis of this study has been confirmed. The findings of this study are appropriate basis for possible future investigations in order to focus on sustainable aspects of the Persian Garden as a repeatable regenerative model for urban spaces.
