Keywords:Architectural Heritage, Tourism, Mobile Application, Tehran
Tehran has many valuable historical buildings as historical and populous capital. However, the increasing growth of the city and the uncontrolled prevalence of construction have endangered the city's architectural heritage in recent years. Introducing people to architecturally valuable buildings, and planning to visit them, reduces the risk of demolition. The purpose of this study is to provide a solution for tourism prosperity in Tehran's architectural heritage. This solution is defined in the form of a smartphone-based application. This study first identifies the needs and necessities of the users and measures the advantages and disadvantages of existing applications. Based on these preliminary studies, a model for designing a tourism application is proposed. Then, based on this model, the mechanism and different parts of the application are defined. The suggested application is an interactive and dynamic app. It is user-friendly and is constantly updated with the help of users. Users always encounter new experiences that other users created. The software user interface encourages the audience to be more active and encourages them to visit the building and protect it.
