Collection 3 : Retrofuturism
Expanding Iranian Ancient Architecture
The remnants of Iranian ancient architecture are getting worse and worse. Consideration, restoration, and restoration of these valuable monuments that are part of the World Heritage Site are slowly taking place. In this project, I have tried to critically extend Iranian ancient architecture with the additions of great architects such as Zaha Hadid, Daniel Liebskind, Norman Foster and … to present a new definition of restoration. We increasingly need a critical and avant-garde look at modern Iranian architectural artifacts.
Selected works relate to pre-Islamic royal palaces and castles in Fars, Sistan, and Baluchistan, Khuzestan and Kashan provinces. The additions of contemporary Western architecture offer a contradictory mix that links Iran’s past to the future and present of the West.
