Iranian architecture is usually associated with historical monuments from the time of ancient Persia, or with significant clay and brick constructions from the 17th to the 19th century. However, Iranian architecture is now very much part of the 21st century. Negar Hakim’s book illustrates this point in a fascinating way. This book contains outstanding examples of modern architecture, with documenting of around 60 buildings in more than 330 pages. In addition, the extensive bibliographical appendix contains the biographies of architects and architectural firms, as well as an overview of the region with the exact addresses of the buildings described. Modern architecture can surprise and inspire – and with this high-quality book, it does so again and again.
