I am trying to work on Tehran’s architectural image in a critical way. In order to do this I have looked through and researched on the city’s building and urban spaces and I have gathered images which can describe the city’s image.
Also I am collecting an archive of objects that can be representatives of the city.
Also, I would like to work on the relation between Public and Private spaces and how this can be defined in the city.
I have just started with drawings.

I continued working on Tehran's buildings and achitecture in a fictional way...
I have started reading "Pages Magazine".
I have found these points interesting:
and I am thinking of using the idea of "Panopticon Architecture" and the structure of "Traditional Persian Architecture" in presenting my ideas and drawings.
I continued my drawings by creating "ARCHITECTURAL UNITS". Combining these units together provides me with new compositions. It can be called "ARCHITECTURAL SUPER UNITS".
In addition of working on Architectural Units I am trying to use the same structures on photos. These photos are mostly old and belongs to my childhood and past years in Tehran. In these sketches I am insisting on the architecture and I put it infront and against the human features.
I assumed a space which there are "Images" on the one side and a "Video" projected on the other side. In between there is a "Reflectetive Glass".
