The main intention of such projects is the creation and/or improvement of social interactions after physical and functional interventions. Urban Renewal Organization of Tehran (UROT) is tasked with identification of target obsolescent neighborhoods, preparation of neighborhood development plans and implementation of rehabilitation projects to improve the quality of space and stimulate social interactions. In this paper, three urban spaces in different scales (“micro” for neighborhoods, “meso” for local and “macro” for trans-local scales), designed and implemented by UROT, were selected as a case study. By designing and filling a questionnaire and after analyzing research findings, the effect of the scale of the urban project on different activities was evaluated based on the Gehl model. Overall, in the expanded model based on the scale of space, an inverse ratio between the scale of space and both optional selective and social activities has been revealed.</em></p> Kaveh Hajialiakbari Mohammad Zare Mitra Karimi Copyright (c) 2021 Dr. Kaveh Hajialiakbari, Dr. Mohammad Zare, Mitra Karimi https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2021-08-18 2021-08-18 6 1 59 68 10.25034/ijcua.2022.v6n1-6 Sustainability of Tourism Development in the city of Ain-Sukhna, Egypt https://ijcua.com/index.php/ijcua/article/view/264 <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Tourism is a major economic source for Egypt, due to its significant natural and cultural attractions. Yet, rapid development and construction of touristic facilities have a negative impact on the fragile natural and cultural heritage. This paper studies the recent touristic developments of the coastal stretch of Ain-Sukhna on the Red Sea coastal region of Galala Mountain, and their impact on the surrounding natural and cultural attractions. Coral reefs and rich marine life have made this stretch among the prime fishing and scuba diving destinations in the world. The area is also famous for its year-round sunny beaches and the spectacular coastal scenic drive where Galala Mountain reaches the Red Sea. Recently, development has started on the mountains following the construction of Galala Mountain Road. Galala City started with Galala University and several residential, touristic, and commercial facilities. This paper studies the pattern of development in the area during the past 40 years and assesses its impact on natural and cultural resources.</em></p> Yasser Mahgoub Copyright (c) 2021 Professor Dr. Yasser Mahgoub https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ 2021-08-14 2021-08-14 6 1 13 22 10.25034/ijcua.2022.v6n1-2
