Attention to heritage area and old texture is very usual in Iran. Since last two decades, revitalization and renovation of historic cores has begun partly in some of the traditional Iranian cities. Historic centre of Isfahan is among the most important cases in central part of Iran. The aim of the conservation of heritage areas in this city is to revive the past image, restoring the ancient parts which still survive, and to adapt the traditional fabric to use in modern life. In this paper, we try to find the relationship between population trends, employment structure, marital status and size of the housing units in the 1st and 3rd municipality district in historic center of the Isfahan city. The result of this present study shows principles which are considered uneven in distribution of population in heritage textures of Isfahan.


Key words: Heritage textures, municipality district, historic center, demographic comparative, population density.
