The tourist Island Kish, with an area of about 90 square kilometers, is located in the Persian Gulf about 20 km from the southern coast of Iran and about 1000 km from Tehran. With its status as a free port, the island has specialized as a successful tourist destination with large hotels and services. The airport is located at the center of the island and all around the settlements. The fortune of the island as a tourist destination has encouraged immigration for reasons of work, and at the same time has brought out the need for new residential areas to accommodate tourists and workers. The thesis explores the development of a tourist and residential sector located on the southern coast of the island, taking into account, in particular, the aspects of energy saving and environmental protection.
The work includes the following parts:
a) topographical and urban analysis of the Island of Kish;
b) verification of the general urban plan for the entire island.
c) urban planning of a sector of approximately 114 hectares with a settlement capacity of 10 thousand people.
