i understand, i like it too in general
in fact, i hate those ugly post modernist/pastiche/random buildings around it with all my heart (the bad ones)
although petra and jordan's climate/history is somewhat irrelevant to iran in these terms, i understand what you mean

generally , many branches of persian architecture are influenced and have influenced ,and in general interwound with such styles, but they could of done better on this building
some of the other examples from iran are in my opinion much more persian than this

if we want to build in this style it is better to use more native "accents" of these types of structures,
good old examples of influence can be the cinema museum (in baghe ferdos), masoudiyeh palace, the cossack house , baghe-melli gate (sardare baghe melli in persian) , kakhe sabz (the green palace) , emarate mashrooteh , baghe negarestan and many many more etc you can search them and then you can see that this is , with all its similarities a bit too extreme for tehran
here is for example a type of aesthetic that should be emphasized more in these buildings within iran

i know this thread is for buildings only but i think it would be interesting to share these
many tunnels in tehran and other cities or iran have some sort of claddic/facade stylisitc elements to them
some are actually nice
this is the tohid tunnel in the southern and working class district of navvab of the city that runs to the north, the buildings are terrible but the tunnel walls and entrance is beautiful in my opinion, very victorianesque, also, very relevant to many brick buildings of tabriz , tehran , qazvin (other northenr half cities in iran)

these tunnels are actually very vast, some covering several kilometres across the city
there are 2 more major tunnels under construction at the moment
not only do the help traffic, take cars off the streets etc, but they are aesthetic, many of the more modern entrances are incorporated into natural hills and are covered with greenery

and the interiors are actually delightful, quite romantic in a sense, a far cry than simple concrete

This is one of my favourite threads on this forum, I've been obsessed with classical architecture forever. I find it so fascinating that more architects and designers haven't caught on to this pent-up demand for classical architecture! Statistically, more residential home buyers prefer a traditional house, but developers see modernism as a cheap way to build, its efficient for office space. I find the perfect example to be Jony Ive- designer for apple- creates the most modern and stream-lined minimalist products, but lives in a classical traditional limestone mansion in San Francisco!

There's a phenomenal book called " get your house right" by Marianne Cusato & Ben Pentreath, that goes into intense detail about scale, proportion and materials, it really explains alot of the differences between GOOD new-traditional builds, and BAD new-traditional builds..... I think theres a lot of arguing in this thread, about what is GOOD and what is BAD, and alot of it has to do with authenticity. This is a great book that explains it all

I can see that Iran will have a great boom once it gets rid off its Islamic governments and the religious laws. All Iran needs is secularism and we would see an entirely different country.

sagol qardas, sadly we have been held back by force for 30+ years, but iran will eventually rise and shape itself up again

some from the south of iran (persian gulf region)
kish island : its a restort-oriented town/city/island, white sand beaches etc, a town with a lot of hotels, and free trade areas
its mostly new and it is rapidly growin
prior to the 1979 revolution, this is place was planned to be like what dubai is today
there were casinos and some top rated hotels, and one of the 3 only airports that could land a concorde was in kish
it was meant to also become a transportation hub like dubai as well
after the revolution well... now its a nice place but still restricted (less than major cities) and still is very nice, but its mostly a place where people from the big cities come to relax for a week or so, the weather is good year round

here is a small shopping/office building
not really proper in dimensions but not too bad either, it looks simple and generally well shaped, its fine for a place like kish




notice the achaemenid column crowns

one of the most expensive tehrani apartments that i have seen
there are many more "lux" ones than this but for some reason this is being listed at approximately 9 million euros, yes, 9 million euros, something you find in monaco
most of these buildings are full too and the demands are high
alot of them even have private car escalators and elevated parking (your parking is beside your unit on whatever floor). complete sound systems to each room, advanced heating cooling and fully automated this and that...

as you see, all the buildings around it are generally in the same style

The cladding materials(perhaps sandstone or lime stone) are really good on those Iranian apartment buildings however I am not very fond of their forms. There are huge problems regarding the proportions.

I agree when it comes to those shown Iranian projects. Materials and details look good. The proportions don't work, because the golden ratio and classical balance is neglected. This isn't how it should be done.
