Over the last few decades, Iranian architects have made a significant contribution to architectural design. This has, however, remained largely unrecognized internationally, as architects in Iran have had little exposure in publications abroad and the diaspora of well-known Iranian designers working in the West, such as Hariri & Hariri and Nader Tehrani of NADAAA, are not necessarily associated with their cultural background. Moreover Iran, or rather Persia, has one of the richest and longest architectural heritages, which has a great deal of untapped potential for contemporary design. The intention of this issue is both to introduce key works and key architects from a range of generations at home and abroad and to highlight the potential of historical structures for contemporary architecture.
