AbstractCities are complex systems, have always faced risks, and many cities that have existed for centuries have demonstrated their resilience in the face of resource shortages, natural hazards, conflicts and Wars.
This paper studies the concept of Resilient City and Effect of the resilient urban form on the resilience of city, where urban morphology plays a fundamental role in the resilience of the whole urban system. The problem of the research is identified in the absence of an integrated theoretical framework about a resilience attributes of urban form which Effect on the resilience of city.
The research addresses the problem by identifying a fundamental goal represented in revealing an integrated theoretical framework about the resilience attributes of urban form which effect on the resilience of city.
To achieve this goal it took the building of the theoretical framework, in the light of which we put forward the hypothesis of the research that reads: The urban form which accommodating of polycentric modular, positively influences a city’s capacity to respond quickly and effectively to disturbances and Crisis cases.
The research, then, sought to test the validity of this hypothesis on Al-Rusafa Historical Center by using Space syntax approaches and draw conclusions the most important of it is that the failure of modular center does not lead to the failure of whole spatial system is an indication of the resilience urban system.
