Iranian Architecture Today: A Bridge between East and West

Modern ‪#‎architecture‬ was introduced in Iran 60 years ago and we are now witnessing the fourth generation of Iranian architects. With architecture how a productive activity, we should admit that considerable progress has been made in this period. Today, most buildings, at least from a bureaucratic perspective, are “engineer-built”.
Iranian architecture displays great variety, both structural and aesthetic, developing gradually and coherently out of prior traditions and experience. Traditionally, the guiding, formative, motif of Iranian architecture has been its cosmic symbolism by which man is brought into communication and participation with the powers of heaven. This theme, shared by virtually all Asia and persisting even into modern times, not only has given unity and continuity to the architecture of Persia, but has been a primary source of its emotional characters as well.
Iranian architecture is based on several fundamental characteristics. These are:
• Introversion
• Structure
• Homogeneous proportions
• Anthropomorphism
• Symmetry and anti-symmetry
• Minimalism
