In design idea of this project, with special attention to the structure of the Iranian architectural spaces and elements in these spaces, in addition to dealing with a lot of problems including those involving cumbersome urban terms, construction and technical problems and … It was tried to use the golden rectangle as a module to create a ‘Metal Amood’ which became as a crust on the overall level, in addition of converting the main street adjacent surfaces, so that it must be covered by cement or stone or brick in the municipal rules for building facades in the project site. In this ‘Metal Amood’ some beautiful conceptual sentences such as “Knowledge is power” or “I have never in my life learned anything from anyone whose agreed with me” were designed to be similar to a massive crossword puzzle, and also the presence of letters on the façade has a good meaning.


This ‘Metal Amood’ creates a sense of unity to the volume of this project and creates a connection between inside and outside space and include a sense of beautiful play with the light and shadow in different hours of the day and caused an alive and dynamic space at any hour of the day according to the sun’s movement across the sky. Also at night time the interior light passing from inside of this shell to the outside, shows a different example of Persian Architecture in contemporary time in an urban environment.
