Tagh Behesht

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
The everyday life of each and every one of us today largely involves social functions and activities in which we participate on a daily basis. To improve the individual’s social life and collaboration with others, one of the most important city design structures deals with producing accessible and appropriate public spaces. In the absence of such spaces in Iran, we decided to put public and social spaces to a challenge and attempt to conceptualize an ideal possible option. The project’s principal idea is to present a new perspective on public urban spaces of which many Iranian cities such as Mash-had are in desperate need. The project’s site has great potential to become an urban hub, given its proximity to one of Mash-had’s largest public parks which encourages and invites visitors of all ages. Its strategic geography allows it for it to become a major attraction for tourists and visitors of nearby countries since Mellat Park is among Mash-had’s first tourist attractions.
