PLANTING DESIGN UTILIZING PHYTOREMEDIATION OF GARDEN-RANGELAND ECOTYPES IN URBAN GREEN SPACE (CASE STUDY OF THE NEW CITY OF PARDIS)
Developing and expanding the cities and the increasing the industrial activities in and around cities have produced many environmental problems and issues and threatened human health. It is possible that environmental design science plays a particularly significant role in this field, primarily green space designing that it is possible to be examined in terms of various aspects. Accordingly, there are new ideas in this field, including the design of new cities with a phytoremediation approach. This research aims to examine and analyze the collected library and field documents in order to define accurately the principles of ecological design in new cities utilizing the refining qualities of plants in order to reform the environment and reduce the harmful environmental influences of pollutants. Accordingly, the urban, climatic features of Pardis are first examined and proper air-purifying plants were then investigated and introduced according to the pollution produced by the soil of the region through sewage inserting the canals and no suitable and sufficient green space in the city, which is one of the major environmental problems of this city and regarding the design principles in the surrounding green spaces and passages of the region.
