Traditional built settlements, which usually present original and local qualities in contrast to settlements dominated by professional planning, normally are found lacking in post-development conditions. The incompatibility of the planning practice with traditional qualities is partly rooted in its analysis and design (planning) methods; and it seems important to devise an alternative method which can reflect processes which shape those qualities. This study, after making a review on prevailing methods of information analysis within planning processes, argues why those methods are blind to traditional quality, or are unable to wade through an appropriate intervention there. Subsequently, by introducing fundamentals of case-based reasoning models, this study suggests that a study on and evaluation of previous experiences, within that model, is capable of simulating traditional art evolution processes; and justify its adoptability in modern planning. In conclusion, this study proposes how and where these models may be applied within the planning bureaus for retrofitting these models for adoption within traditional environments.
