beautiful works on enghelab street

these buildings are an inseparable part of the beauty and culture of tehran's architecture, they are in the middle of classical and modern styles and usually get overlooked but thankfully these projects are bringing them back to life, some are very fine, sadly there are alot of eye-sores around them and it would be great to one day slowly re-fill the area with these types of buildings

this one is beautiful, corner buildings really change the view of the street




as you see, some buildings have already been renovated (pics are posted in previous posts)

I agree it would be great to have some uniformity ESP if they style tends towards these 60s 70s originals. Then the whole area would look stylish rather than a messy all sorts it is now adays.

These are actually more from the mid 20s-40s
It definitely would look stylish

I don't know why but there is something wrong with these streets.
I mean with all the renovations the historic neighborhoods are definitely looking "better" but still it doesn't look "interesting", it doesn't even look historic in the first place.
I mean you can't ever compare a street like "Nasser Khosro" or "Tajrish" to some random streets in cities like Istanbul or Baku, let alone the Western capitals.

We should make some revolutionary works for our historic areas, we won't get anywhere with all this renovation.

I know what you mean. I think like Soroush says its the lack of some uniformity in the physical size and styles of then buildings. Like Enghelab looks like a High Street in a provincial town that doesn't fit it's present location at all. Even the trees that could hid so much ugliness are not there. And the odd really cool buildings are either too run down or swamped by a multitude of different height neighbours, street and shop signs or ugly pedestrian crossings festooned with odd billboard ads. Then there is the ultimate let down, power lines or worse strings of lightbulbs up and down anything and everything. Maybe in another 300 years Tehran's city centre will feel interesting. Tehran's charm has always been in its often hidden individual buildings. A whole street is stretching it a bit! Lol

there are various factors, but i think alexsal said most of them

alot of these projects are not done by experts or with proper materials/methods, and even designs, thats why some look a bit "childish" , and some are very good, some are not, so there is an in-balance.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

baharestan is getting updated , alot of the buildings are receiving face-lifts. the pavement as soldier said in a few posts before is becoming stone, i hope this means that pedestrian ways are taking over. even if not, i think it is an important move because it shows people and future designers that this is an important area, and that these old regions must be valued and presented in the best way , rather than be neglected

one great step would be to remove the needless railings beside the sidewalks, they clutter the streets alot





notice the renovated building (s)






sadly the new glass box in the back completely ruins the views to baharestan

Last week, I was walking from Theater-e-Shahr to Enghelab Sq. The area looks great after renovation. You can see many coffee shops in the area. Good for chilling out.
