Architecture in Iran is on the move. Surrounded by a strictly regulated public space, Iranians have a long tradition of keeping their private lives hidden. Visiting the homes of artists, entrepreneurs, and architects all over the country, Lena Späth has made it her mission to show us what beauty lies behind Iran’s closed curtains – and the increasing popularity of good design. Focusing on the inner life of homes and their stories, a panorama of modern Iranian living unfolds.
With its collection of photographs and floor plans of seven selected projects, this scroll explores varied and unique approaches to contemporary Iranian architecture and design, giving us a glimpse of its beauty and variety.
