it's unbelievable. the government actually decided to destroy the building. it was an order.
they actually destroyed 5 buildings in this area (which is the most historic district in shiraz) some months ago. this was the "only" building which survived but this was destroyed too. and for what?
due to the expansion of "beinol haramein".
isna wrote an article about "who is destroying the houses in shiraz?"
miduni ke tu iran vezarat o sazman o anjoman o senf hamash kashkan.

you can read the article here.

bushehr is fantastic, it has so much potential but it too is slowly being destroyed
the geography is fantastic and the architecture is sublime, it can be a place that all iranians can enjoy and relax in and most importantly a great place that the locals can live in and feel proud
but all the good stuff is coming to an end
the old areas are shrinking and the new constructions are irrelevant and ugly

The building in Sari is amazing. Love the structure of the roof. It also extends right out I think to protect against rain which befits the location. Great job.

Renovation of 31 historical monuments ceded to private sector

Renovation of 31 historical monuments has been ceded to the private sector, said caretaker of the Fund for Renovation and Exploitation of Historical and Cultural Monuments.
Mohammadreza Pouyandeh added that the private sector is committed to spending 460 billion rials ($15.3 million) to renovate the dilapidated monuments.
Some 269 historical monuments in need of renovation have been identified, he said.
He put the number of identified monuments of the country at over one million, of which 33 have been registered on National Heritage List and 19 on UNESCO World Heritage List.
He said Teimareh region in Khomein, Markazi province, has valuable monuments which date back to 40,000 years.
Meanwhile, director general of Markazi Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Department said the First International Epigraph Seminar will be held next May.
Mohammad Hosseini added that Teymareh Epigraph Museum would be launched in Khomein in the near future.

some renovation work in dezful

dezful has at least attempted to revive and keep whatever it has left of it's old core

the appearance seems of good quality, however, the next step is to make these areas livable, safe (against climate changes, etc), modern (proper plumbing, electricity, heating) and allowing life to return to these areas through shops, residential allocations and ....

the place looks empty, its like they built it and just left it
expansion of the core, adding more cafes etc would also be very good











the river area should also be rebuilt from scratch, a real boulevard and cafe area is needed for the river, and the banks must be cleaned
those plastic little roofs look terrible



places like this need to be renewed, who would want to live here? it looks like a medieval prison cell

Every time I see picture of Dezful I am impressed all over again. I agree that the next step is to make these places livable, but honestly, after all the hit and miss projects we see around Iran, let's just take a step back and appreciate that these little alleys and streets have been restored at all. These pictures seem to show a lot of damage still existing, but pictures in the past show that there has been a lot of good work done in the town.

And also, our northern towns have a lot of potential, yet also seem to be chronically neglected. It just shocks me that we can have so much architectural beauty in our country, yet so few people who are able and/or wanting to take care of it.

Soroush this one is for you.

Do you remember we were talking about what the old bazaars could be used now that malls are growing like mushrooms? Well this is a clip from Iran's handicraft exhibition in New Delhi and look at it from 38 sec on. The fit is perfect! Multi room display exhibition space would suit the old buildings really well and save them from getting neglected. Thoughts?

Funds Allocated to Restore 11 Qanats

The government has earmarked 300 billion rials ($7.9 million) for the next fiscal year (starts March 21, 2017) for the restoration and preservation of 11 qanats inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List last year under the name "Iran's Ancient Qanat System".

"Each qanat will receive a specified amount of money depending on factors such as their location, tourism capacity and level of restoration," Mohammad Hossein Talebian, a deputy for cultural heritage at Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, was quoted as saying by IRNA.

Qanats are underground aqueducts first used by Persians c. 1000 BC. These structures were used to transfer water from aquifers in highlands to the surface at lower levels by gravity. Historians believe the qanats of Iran were built on a scale that rivaled the great aqueducts of the Roman Empire.

"Among the estimated 37,000 qanats throughout the country, 120 have been identified and located by the experts. However, only 11 were able to receive UNESCO status," Talebian said.

The official said world heritage sites are under the protection of UNESCO and other international organizations, which bring global attention to them.

"It is imperative to ensure the qanats' structural stability, which task falls on ICHHTO, local water and cultural heritage officials and the Ministry of Agriculture," Talebian said.

Throughout the arid regions of Iran, agricultural and permanent settlements are supported by the ancient qanat system of tapping alluvial aquifers at the heads of valleys and conducting the water along underground tunnels by gravity, often over many kilometers.

South Khorasan, Yazd, Kerman, Isfahan and Markazi provinces are home to the 11 qanats inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. Reportedly, some of them include rest areas for workers, water reservoirs and watermills.

The traditional communal management system still in place allows equitable and sustainable water sharing and distribution.

The qanats provide exceptional testimony to cultural traditions and civilizations in desert areas with an arid climate.

It is just an idea, but Iran should create small "downtown" like european cities in average iranian cities (and even in Tehran) :

- Use of non-built areas or expropriation of shady houses (South Tehran for example)
- Development of a pedestrian square(s) with statues or fountains.
- The square will be surrounded with new buildings (neo greco roman a la North Tehran for example). groud floor of these buildings you can have stores, cafe and restaurants. Cafe and Restaurants could have tables on the square.
- creation of pedestrian streets around with average to fancy shops. bike lines could be added.

Thats how it was and should still of been
Each area had (and older areas today still do) have a small central square / sabze meydoon or a dense street with shops and cafes around , and houses would surround these areas .

But with the advent of modern city development , the idea was forgotten. We even have modern cities built with no core and center like hashtgerd or shahin shahr and even karaj
And now as you say its time to bring back localism and proper urban design

Italian Investor Eyes Restoration Projects

An Italian investor is considering investing in restoration projects and repurposing them for tourism purposes, the head of the Revitalization and Utilization Fund for Historical Places said. As reported on the fund's website, Claudio Bassi, an Italian entrepreneur and founder of IRITALY that finances development projects, said in a meeting with Iranian cultural heritage officials earlier this week that IRITALY is ready to fund projects that restore historical sites. "We want to work with Iranian partners to restore historical sites and manage them according to the highest global standards," Bassi said. Mohammad Reza Pouyandeh, the head of the fund, said 60 restoration projects have been offered to as many foreign investors in the last Iranian year (March 2015-16). "Work is underway on 26 of those projects," he added. Pouyandeh noted that the fund is ready to assist Bassi, as long as he is serious.

Hoteliers Consider Investing in Old Buildings

Hoteliers are willing to invest in the revival of historical buildings and repurpose them into lodging facilities, the head of Kerman Province's Hoteliers Society said.

"Old structures, if restored, have the potential to help develop tourism but not much interest is shown in their revival," Ali Moeinzadeh was quoted as saying by travel news website Donyayesafar.com.

To restore ancient buildings and make them profitable, the Revitalization and Utilization Fund for Historical Places has initiated a plan to cede historical buildings to the private sector so long as they are repurposed into hotels, restaurants or lodging places.

The target is to cede about 100 buildings to the private sector for restoration every year, which means a total of 1,084 buildings will be ready for use by the end of the 2025 Vision Plan.

"Every province has a hoteliers' society that can tap into the potential of these structures and turn them into sources of revenue," Moeinzadeh said.

Iran, a historical country, is home to a large number of old mansions and buildings, which can contribute to the country's nascent tourism industry if managed appropriately and restored carefully.

Reportedly, 60 restoration projects were offered to as many foreign investors in the last Iranian year (started March 20, 2016) and work is underway on 26 of those projects.

Italian and Swedish investors have recently expressed readiness to fund the restoration and repurposing of historical houses in Kerman, Kashan and Isfahan.

Officials hope to compensate for Iran's woefully underdeveloped hotel sector by increasing the sector's capacity to host tourists by restoring old mansions and turning them into traditional-style lodging facilities.
