Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, Ajo, Az To maximize the shaded area, the idea is to go through the ground and also hovering a space above it. Also The disadvantage of the parking, which acts as a heat island, is transformed into a desirable element. The parking area which is covered by black asphalt gets hot by absorbing solar radiation and the hot air rises. By enhancing the green area at the back side of the building, the resulting two different temperature zones will cause air flow. 05 06

Organ Pipe National Monument is a very large national park in Arizona surrounded by the Mexico-United States border to the south, the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge to the east, and the Tohono O’odham Nation to the west. The most important building at the park is the visitor’s center, which is located beside Highway 85. It is the first building you see upon entering the park. The building has two main functions. The first is welcoming visitors to the park by providing information through exhibits and multimedia presentations. The other function of the center is providing an administration space for rangers. The main purpose of this project is to redesign the existing structure, considering environmental effects, to create a Net-Zero building. The climate condition is one of the most major considerations when undertaking this task. Creating shaded areas and taking advantage of existing elements is a primary strategy in this project. The main concept is to increase the efficiency of the building as much as possible through the least amount of change. For this reason, the entrance lobby is the only part of the building to undergo significant structural change. Many sustainable strategies are also devised to reduce the energy consumption, while also generating new energy. Illustrating the concept of changing the existing building as little as possible, retaining as much as we can. After Before 07 08

Observation Deck Existing Building Daylight Simulation New Building Daylight Simulation The only part of the existing building that has been changed is the entrance lobby, considered the heart of the building. A sunken garden has also been designed to create new space, and also to enhance the shaded area and air flow. The parking lot, previously a disadvantage, now acts to create a breezeway through the center of the building as air circulates between the warm parking lot and the cool air from the green area in the back of the building. The walls act as multi purpose construction elements: guiding air flow, as characteristic design elements, and also as a solar chimney coupled with the cooling pipe. The green area at the building’s rear has a very positive effect on the sunken garden, shown in the wind tunnel simulation. Changing the central part of the building has also improved the quality of natural daylight. 11 Wind Tunnel Simulation 12

Vast Glazed Facade Face to West The subject of this project is redesigning an existing building which was under the construction process when this research was done. This building is one of the most important national buildings in Iran which will host the international annual book exhibition and also is the permanent book exhibition for the whole nation. The reason for selecting this building is the orientation of north to south and a very long west façade which is made entirely of with the glass. This research shows the role of sustainable thinking in terms of saving energy. In the two pictures below, the site of this project is shown before and after the construction process to clarify the amount of soil which was moved to replace it with the new building. This site had very fluctuated topography which was changed to a flat field for new construction. Because the surrounding area is vastly pavement, the green roof was devised in response. The main goal of this design is to make a comparison demonstrating how the potential can be used in better ways.

There are two steps before starting the new design. First, is studying about the context, especially climate, and weather data, which leads to critical design codes. The second step is studying the passive strategy and evaluating the existing potential for using different improved strategies. Extracting the codes from this research enabled the start of the design process. Because the building is one story, and the roof gathers daylight, a living tree is possible inside the space. 15 16

Using the Natural Slop for Designing the Side Hall to Create Different Views Different Strategy for Saving Energy in Side Halls Instead of flattening the field, this design is according to the topography and general slope of the site. By doing so not only is the cost of construction reduced, the environment is also preserved by decreasing the footprint of the building. Designing in accordance with the slope, enables the use of various environmental strategies. The first and most effective strategy is earth sheltering which is useful in both summer and winter. Another advantage would be using natural daylighting for spaces at different levels. In terms of architectural design, spatial variety, views, and access are also improved.

The daylight analysis revealed that in center of spaces, because of very huge slabs, the daylight factor is very low. This anlysis is done by Radiance. In new design the huge glazed roof, this is devised with shades; enable to use daylight in space. Moreover, because all this building is one story, it’s almost no room without natural daylighing. Another achieved goal is the amount of using energy for cooling and heating that is cut to almost half.

215 Beltway The greater Las Vegas area is a prime example of the suburban sprawl phenomenon, and has created small municipal communities within and on the outskirts of the city core. The car continues to be the main source of transportation and public transportation is associated with the homeless population and low income individuals. The gentrification of transportation brings us to a startling realization of current socio-economic activities and locations. Higher income individuals travel longer distances to large box shopping centers, and lower income individuals use local retail centers. Retail is seemingly a place for community and is seen as an archetype to create “community.” However, the lack of socio-economic diversity does not provide a lasting model for future development nor growth. Is it possible to use interstitial spaces along the beltway to foster a renewed sense of community and simulThe urban center of Las Vegas has reached its maximum capacity. Although there are some vacant lots that pepper the interior (in Downtown Las Vegas, for example), there is no unoccupied space momentous enough to initiate social change; something paralleling the Strip (but nothing like the Strip!) would be required to change the way that occupants of Las Vegas function.

The spaces that attracted us along this extensive corridor were the leftovers: the spaces in between the highway and the road. These spaces have an undesirable adjacency with the highway. They are the rejects, and stand in complete juxtaposition to the existent infrastructure. They are pedestrian in scale and “slower” in character (in comparison to the 60mph highway, they are the very image of stagnancy). Furthermore, the highway 215 is considered to be “the middle of nowhere:” not a destination, but rather a means to an end. By choosing sites that are adjacent to this means, we hope to make commuters reconsider their daily routine. Another opposition is that the highway represents the daily and mundane, whereas the leftovers represent the eventful and spontaneous. We hoped to introduce a new type of the “everyday-exciting.” This is something that is sorely lacking for the locals of Las Vegas, who are frustrated by the city’s absence of exciting design spirit beyond the the Strip. This very advantage, also contributes to the greatest challenge of the design : we are NOT designing a building, so what would pull people out of their cars, for what is essentially a landscape? ​ 29 The Design Proposal for 215 Beltway Leftover Area 30

Designing far away from the major activities in the city was the most challenging issue; however, we wanted to use the maximum potential of the sites and encourage people to become involved, defining new meaning for the project. The big idea is providing facilities for local people to encourage them to do social activities. These can be sports, local gatherings, or local markets in a convenient place. 1 4 2 5 3 6 Manipulate the Exiting Water Channel Walls and Floors Temporary Supporting Frames Installing the Hexagonal Modules Shoot Concrete onto the Modules Devise Secondary Pipes to Keep Existing Channel Dry Introduce Undulating Pedestrian Path Studying the climate data tells us that solar radiation will be the main concern for this region. Moreover, we want to use the local people to enliven the project since we don’t want to build more than a shelter which serves as a space for human activities. As a result, we were inspired by the long, tall organic canyon forms which are in the shade most of the day. To use the maximum capabilities of the space, the second suspended level is defined. This level is the long ramp with the various slopes that go beyond the roof and back underground. When the users are outside, they are visible from the highway and this makes the other people and drivers curious about the project and encourages them to get involved. ​ To use the existing potential of the site, instead of excavating which is very expensive in Las Vegas due to its hard ground, we used the existing water channel for our proposal. We devised secondary pipes for carrying running water. Also, the site can be evacuated during flood hazards and fill with running water without a problem since there isn’t any additional facility to be harmed. ​

This shop is advantageously located at a corner within a commercial complex, visible from two points of view from the entrance. It was important to attract visitors into the corner, acting as a point of initial absorption. Another consideration was emphasizing a deep view into the shop from the side in which visitors exiting the elevator had a direct line of site. The shop was also designed to have a very feminine aesthetic, immediately readable and attractive to women as a women’s clothing shop. Although the client wanted the design to feel luxurious, the budget was a restraint and the main focus was on design, rather than the use of expensive materials. Suspended Wall 33 34

The Main Frame of Ceiling is Supported by 4 Columns The Main Structure of Ceiling The Force Flow Inside the Dome Covering the Structure with Dry Walls Panels Due to the shape of the plane, a cylindrical design was chosen because it fits properly and covers the previously unused spaces and columns. One of the cylinders is semi-closed and located at the corner which geometrically and visually attracts people from a distance. The other is semi-open and functions as the showcase space. Construction the open cylinder was not problematic because it was, in reality, just a curved wall. For the closed cylinder, which has one hovering part, three columns were already existing with the fourth being added. In the end, the overall appearance makes it seem that all of the columns had been constructed to support the new geometry, when in reality it had covered unwanted structures. To conceal the pipes and mechanical elements within the ceiling, a domed ceiling was devised which works well with the curved walls. All of the lighting and HVAC systems considered for the ceiling were divided into sections for ease of construction. By doing so, gaps were also created which were perfect for clothes hangers.

Construction Process This shop is the combination of three pre-existing shops created by removing the interior walls. The brand is TIFFI, a Polish fashion brand that has multiple branches in Iran. The first design alternative focuses on the new style of presenting the products to the costumers. The idea was flashing backlight on clothing to show the texture of the fabric beside the color. The client, because of the financial consideration, decided to use the predefined guideline from the mother company. This guideline includes color, the shape of stands, types of materials, and lighting. As a result, the whole design was a matter of organizing the elements, building furniture and implementing appropriate details. 39 40

Rainier Beach Neighborhood Plan Future Pedestrian Linkages and Soften and Open Edge of School Property + The Site of the Competition The main idea for this project is enhancing the performance of the building in terms of energy use and social sustainability.By doing so, the building can be a good example for the ommunity to draw more attention to the sustainability. According to the climate analysis, Seattle is considered a cold climate and we need to heat up the spaces much more than cooling them. Getting the maximum solar access is the main concept. ​ The altitude of the sun in December and January is close to 10 degrees and during this time, we need the most solar penetration. According to this angle, the distance of the blocks defined does not create shade over each other during winter. Solar access was also considered for the underground part of the building. Earth sheltering is also an advantage of this design. The second concept is to enhance the performance of the building by designing a greenhouse area as a shared space. This space is considered a buffer layer to prevent dramatic temperature fluctuation and heat up the building during the winter. While the main consideration is the cold seasons, during summer, shade is provided for different surfaces. The consideration includes but not limited to PV panels on top of the roof, a solid wall on the east and west sides of the building, suspended material over the outdoor spaces, overhang for windows, blinds for the greenhouse and deciduous ivy on the south facade. 47 48

The main idea of the space below the housing is to create a communal performance area that can draw people into a sunken courtyard. The operable stage is able to be raised when not in use. Different surfaces such as sloped grasses, integrated stairs or connecting ramps are used for public viewing of the performance space that lends to the unique urban quality at the base of the buildings.

Another major element in this project is the sunken garden to provide solar penetration into the underground and to create social gathering space. Also, all of the slopes of the sunken garden guides rainwater to the harvesting water tank underground for irrigation and use in flushing of toilets. To improve social activity, the first consideration is transparency of the public function for the city. All the public spaces have a specific distance from the sidewalk to draw people inside the project. According to The Rainier Beach Neighborhood plan, this site is considered a key intersection and there is a future pedestrian linkage to the eastside. As a result, a retail and cafe component can work on two sides and eventually there is no ending wall around this building. The educational spaces and ESL classes are underground and have access to the garden and the commercial spaces. There are two open spaces under the suspended material which can be used for pop-up activities and a performance stage. Finally, the residents are able to share food by planting local products in the greenhouse area. In these spaces, people will share different experiences and children will be educated. 49 50

The concept is to show specific information for each martyr and different lines on the ground pointing in the direction of the relevant locations in this order: Name of Martyr Birth Place Date of Martyring Martying Place The will of Martyr Grave Place The moving flag is a symbol of surviving for this monument and the water surface at the base hosts the symbolic shadow of the monument. The orientation of the monument is considered to visualize the shadow of the person at the specific time during the year which is the date of martyring. This aim will be done by a small pattern on a brick wall. 57 The Shadow of the Martyr at the Sunset Time at the Date of Martyrin 58

Cars Passing Very Fast by Our Project SITE PLAN The main concept of this design is to illustrate the function of a detergent factory in its entryway. For this aim, a spherical shape is employed and converted into capsule forms. These hollow forms are white, showcasing cleanliness and will additionally respond to lighting at night. Another consideration is the method of displaying exterior advertising. Because this project is located beside a highway, the view of the passerby is continually changing. Two exterior surfaces are defined, revealing two different pictures to viewers according to their angle of vision. The Main Concept Inspiration The Angular View of the Cars Change while Driving Transfared Geometry 59 60

NEYSHABUR BAZAR NATIONAL COMPETITION COMMERCIAL   CULTURAL SUMMER 2011 NEYSHABUR, IRAN  10
The proposal for this competition follows Iranian architectural design. The main principles are using pure geometry, straight lines and to revive the paradise spaces for people to gather and observe nature. Using local materials and demonstrating old materials in new ways was also an important consideration. Water has a unique role in this design as well. Receding the space into the ground to gain shaded surfaces and using a large amount of water brings many environmental advantages to the project essential to this hot, arid climate. The architecture focal point is the interior, with all spaces gathered around the ‘paradise’ which includes a large sunken garden. Integration between trees and architectural space is also an important part of the experience.

KARAFARIN BANK NATIONAL COMPETITION FOR ALL BRANCHES COMMERCIAL SUMMER 2013 IRAN 12
KARAFARIN BANK NATIONAL COMPETITION FOR ALL BRANCHES COMMERCIAL SUMMER 2013 IRAN  12
The subject of this competition is to design an adjustable facade form to create a unique character for one of Iran’s most prominent banks. Inspiration came from the original logo of the bank. This logo, a circle within squares, is imagined as an infinite rotation of squares framing a circle. By using this idea of multiple layers, a facade was designed which is original while preserving the original feeling of the logo. The resulting module can be flexible in any dimension and can be fitted and scaled to different buildings. Also, the stacking layers are reminiscent of the shape of money, in accord with the purpose of the project.

HAND SKETCHING Before starting architectural school, I tried to learn perspective principles during high school by trial and error since I was fascinated by sketching the cars. I also learned to use rendering markers before entering university in the process. All of the car sketches that you see are done more than 10 years ago. Although I didn’t find a chance to go back to car sketching, I used this experience as a student and it helped me a lot to convey my ideas in a fast and easy way. Moreover, I used this advantage when I wanted to enter the graduate level of studying since sketching a complete project is one of the most important parts of the graduate school entrance exam.
