From the architect. Mellat Park Cineplex, located in the municipal district 3 of Tehran in an extended and indefinite piece of land with the area of 6000 sq m, has been designed and constructed in the far south-east side of Mellat Park.

With the total floor area of 15400 sq m, this project includes 4movie halls, each occupying 300 persons, and a small performance hall with the capacity of 30 persons, along with exhibition areas, restaurant, coffee shop, Book and CD store, offices and service areas.

Regarding the long and indeterminate shape of the site and the possibility to place 2 movie halls on the ground floor and 2 other movie halls at the basement, the spatial organization of the project has been defined in a way to present an idea of space in accordance with the physical program and the structure of the project and also having interaction with the exquisite nature of the environment.

Hence, by connecting the rotating slopes of the two movie halls along one another, an extensive covered plaza (Eyvan) was created which is the main achievement of this project for the city, and will be a place to talk, to exchange ideas, to celebrate an occasion and a variety of other cultural and social events.

The main attributes of this project can be shortened in 5 main issues:
1- Finding lost spaces in the city to rehabilitate them to active urban spaces.
2-Accordance with the park environment and the perspective of the mountains in the north of Tehran
3- Integration, Architecture, Structure and Program
4- Creating a dialogue with the city through the generation of urban open spaces (Eyvan).
5- Posing the issue of movement and time through the creation of a flexible and variable structure along the project by employing general ramps; the dynamism and change has been presented both conceptually and literally.

Wow, incredible blog layout! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog for? you made running a blog look easy. The total glance of your website is wonderful, as neatly as the content!

Rashed Azizi · June 07, 2011

being brave is sth really difficult in contemporary architecture in iran, imagine that our construction methods are really old and out of date, so this building, specificly in construction, is a good sample for young architects...

Nice to post the original building. Sadar-Vuga office ripped off their design for their Block 39 competition entry in Serbia, it's got to expose this kind of stuff.

Rodas · March 04, 2011

Beautiful!
maybe not a master piece, but definitely a great pleasure feeling when perceptible by my ocular organs!

Although I love all the Iranian Architects, but let's be honest. I know lots of problems and restrictions in Iran. But, what is a masterpiece? what is so creative or innovative with this building? It may be the best contemporary building in Iran, but have ever feel that fluidity in the spaces? It just exists in the form of the building. Have you ever found that the building has no good relationship with site and it's surrounding? The architect has tried to paste that to the site just by it's two furthest edges. the two other surfaces, which are the same, are even more terrible, no harmony with the rest of building and the park .Another thing that bothers me a lot is the building's volume which don't let the people see the view of Alborz mountains which are one of the main characteristics of Tehran. But in my view it's plaza is one of the best urban spaces in the city which suffers form public spaces. I think it could be even better.
Thanks Reza Daneshmir.
