Honorable Mention

Nominated of Middle East Architect Awards 2016 – Sustainable Project of The Year

Tehran – IRAN

Spring 2016


The neighborhood in which this building is located is capable of valuable potentials since it is a link between Tehran’s Northern and Southern zones. This centeredness has caused this zone to be as a bypass for numerous people during the day and therefore, it has a suitable context to draw people’s attentions in Tehran. Regarding the city’s complicated and unsolved problems, it seems somehow possible to bring a new approach in buildings’ design and wait to see the incipient steps in solving the crises gradually. Designing greener facades for buildings could be a start point for returning Tehran’s former cityscape by using green plants, which are compatible with the present climatic conditions, in the façade. This building also can be a pioneer in this movement since it is exposed to thousands of people each and every day.
