Tokyo Museum to Host Iran Architecture Exhibit in March

Contemporary and modern architecture of Iran will be presented at Archi-Depot, a museum in Tokyo, Japan, dedicated to architecture models.
Iranian architect Mehrdad Zavareh-Mohammadi has curated the exhibition of Iranian architecture due to open March 6.
The event is being organized following an invitation from the Architectural Institute of Japan. An estimated 80 architecture models will be displayed at Archi-Depot. The models are from projects that have already been completed and include houses, apartments and villas, ISNA reported.
The two-month exhibit will include three sections. The first will represent architecture from the First Pahlavi period (1941-1979). “This section includes 20 prominent projects such as the iconic Azadi Tower, City Theater, Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts, Carpet Museum, Niavaran Cultural Center and the senate building (all in Tehran),” Zavareh-Mohammadi said.
The buildings will be presented via models, slide projection, videos, documents, graphs and blueprints.
About the second section, he said it will comprise projects designed for various Iranian cities by notable architects from Japan and other nations. “The projects were suspended for a variety of reasons including the Islamic Revolution in 1979.”
The third section contains contemporary projects in the four categories of public, infill (rezoning of land in an urban environment, usually open space, to new construction), monad (isolated self-sufficient and smart constructions in nature) and unbuilt projects of large dimensions.
“On the sidelines of the exhibition, scientific and research symposiums will be held, where notable architects such as Arata Isozaki, 86, and Riichi Miyake, 69, from Japan, as well as Ali Kermanian from Iran will speak.
After Tokyo the exhibition will be held in Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz and Mashhad.
