Historical urban textures remind the period of time that cities were constructed based on the
requirements, purposes and tastes of residents. On the other word, the viewpoint of builders and
residents were close together. But nowadays, without attention to the memories and fixation of
citizens, rapid growth in historical urban textures leads to destruction of memories and perishing
the identity of cities. Therefore architecture as an important sector of urban fabric, is experiencing
rupture not only in the urban texture but also in the residents’ authentic cerebration.
In addition to illuminating the importance of the authentic cerebration for the approach of new
architectural design in historical urban textures, this paper aims to answer this question: How can
we explain the architectural approach in infill developments through extracting living qualities
from the authentic cerebration, with regard to the diverse architectural approaches ranging from
opposition to similarity.
The research method is qualitative with case study approach. Data collecting is firstly based on
library and digital resources. The information regarding architectural approach in historical urban
textures and the ways of identity formation for the considered urban textures were firstly studied.
Then the joint memories were identified through interviewing with the elder residents in the district
of Imamzade Yahya- one of the three districts in Oodlajan. After distributing questionnaires
among the residents, the data analysis was carried out by the means of SPSS software. The results
indicate a meaningful relationship between the authentic and modern cerebration approach to
the new architecture (infill developments). Besides, considering the variety of the studied places,
there are some results concerning the authentic cerebration in historical urban textures that are
related to land uses, proximity to the valuable urban grains, joint intangible events, etc. which are
the cases in this point and all are capable of being extracted from the authentic cerebration of the
urban textures. So in order to improve physical identity, the results should be employed in architectural
design of historical urban textures.
