As geopolitical isolation gives way to international rapprochement for Iran, all eyes are on how this highly educated, culturally rich, as well as commodity rich, nation is going to develop. While certain sectors have undoubtedly been affected by decades of sanctions, the Iranian architecture scene – bereft of Western starchitectural interventions – has managed to flourish.
Our ‘Architecture Iran’ series looks at a range of projects completed recently in the Islamic Republic from a number of angles, with its second installment focusing on how the old Persian concerns of geometry and light are enjoying a renaissance in contemporary architectural praxis.
