ZAAD Studio has teamed up with Challenge Studio to envision a new residential typology for Mashhad, Iran. The 40,000-square-meter tower is designed to incorporate passive green energy strategies and emulate a "small town" feel. It's distinct shape, based on a philosophy of "void design," resulted from the desire to exchange built program for share green space that will enhance interaction between dwellers.
