Iranian Architect in World Festival Jury

Iranian architect Farshad Mehdizadeh has been selected as a jury member of the 15th World Architecture Festival (WAF) set to be held from November 4 to 6 in Singapore, along with other distinguished figures, including Charles Jencks, Peter Cook, Sou Fujimoto and Chris Bosse.
Mehdizadeh, jointly with Raha Ashrafi, was an award winner of the 2014 edition, for the project entitled ‘Isfahan Dreamland Commercial Center’ in Commercial Mixed-Use category of the event. Four other submissions from Iran, including another project by Mehdizadeh and Ashrafi, were also among the finalists at the previous edition, Memarnews.com website reported.
The WAF is an annual event and awards ceremony in the field of architecture. The first festival was held in Barcelona in 2008. At the festivals, shortlisted projects attend a three-day competition for awards in 20-30 categories.
‘Isfahan Dreamland Commercial Center’ is a cost-effective project well-suited to Isfahan’s urban fabric, in the design of which all structural aspects have been considered. The architect started developing the project “with a general view, which is unusual, but it went on to become a successful work of architecture.”
Isfahan, located 340 km south of Tehran, is famous for its Islamic architecture, with many beautiful boulevards, covered bridges, palaces, mosques, and minarets.
