Competition proposal focusing on climatic adaptation, urban density, spatial diversity and ornamentation of the Tehran culture as it is embedded into a developed computational design method that organises volumes according to environmental and spatial requirements. The from this design process resulting building complex is a dense, yet open and porous building with an array of intricate pathways, niches and courtyards. The structural exoskeleton is designed as a modular system of nine parts that can create rich articulation from formal, environmental and structural objectives and ensure a simple and feasible manufacturing and construction process of a an otherwise complex building.
The design project was published in MARK magazine #21 (2009).
