What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

Architecture allows people to realize dreams by participating in the design process. The participation often improves the design by orienting the architecture to the user’s demands. When the architect offers a parametric design to users, he provides them with adaptive alternatives. In the traditional architecture of Iran, the architects have taken this path to keep the users involved in design and construction process.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

Architecture should adapt contemporary trend and the user’s involvement. The competitions are the best chance to call the attentions to adaptive and parametric architecture, and let them see the future from our perspective. More importantly, participation in such competitions aims us to think universally and provides us with valuable experiences.
