In the annals of Iran's past, the control of land ownership as a means of authority has perpetually resided within the realm of governmental oversight, leading to encroachments upon private possessions. This quandary emanates from a flawed theoretical framework, instigating a state of perplexity across all strata of Iranian society, encompassing urban centers. The present manuscript delves into the precarious nature of property rights concerning urban landscapes in Iran subsequent to the Islamic Revolution, elucidating the transformative impact of this instability on the architectural configuration of Iranian municipalities. The investigative framework is characterized as descriptive-analytical. Data were gathered from various sources such as programs, legislation, interviews, studies, and relevant records spanning from the year 1979 to 2013. The outcomes of the study illustrate that subsequent to the success of the Iranian revolution and the government's ideological stance, there has been a significant transformation in the land ownership pattern along with the enactment of laws that, while restricting private ownership, establish a new form of ownership under government control. The government possesses extensive land holdings, leading to a shift in urban land ownership from a conventional structure to an ideological one. Within the ideological narrative of post-revolution administrations, ownership is sometimes viewed as a solution, while in other instances, it is deemed a problem; the government perceives ownership as a factor contributing to the exclusion of the underprivileged, while others argue in favor of its necessity to support vulnerable segments of society. Consequently, a coherent system of ownership fails to materialize, resulting in detrimental impacts on the urban landscape of Iranian cities, particularly Tehran.
