Imam Reza Hospital

These days I am working on my new project of the new semester. I have to design a hospital for 96 beds so I should visit different hospitals in Mashhad and study about foreign examples.

Imam Reza Hospital is one of the biggest (and oldest) health centers of Mashhad. This is built in Pahlavi era and as you see it is in traditional style of architecture which is great and unique.

Happy Sepandar Mazgan Day !

Sepandār mazgān is the celebration day of love and earth in ancient Iranian culture. This day is dedicated to Spenta Armaiti, Spandārmad in middle Persian, the middle Iranian language/ethnolect of Southwestern Iran that during Sassanid times (224-654 CE) became a prestige dialect and so came to be spoken in other regions as well.
It is celebrated the 29Th of Bahman in Iranian calendar. Modern folklore dates the celebration to ancient times and Zoroastrian tradition.the original date for this ceremony is 5Th of Esfand, and a popular revised date of 29Th Bahman is due to the disorganized calendering during the past 20 years.
(Text is written according to wikipedia)

I am sorry that some Iranian people do not know anything about this event in their culture and celebrate the Valentine day (which is refer to another culture) instead of it.

A Dry Winter

The winter is going to be finished and we had not enough snow. It seems that a very horrible summer is on the way. I can hear a gloomy symphony from the nature, but what we can do?!

"S" for Surprise

The last time that I went there, she was still pregnant. I mean our dog which lives in our garden. Today morning we decided to go to garden and when we arrived…wow, my God! Am I seeing true?! 8 cute pups?! Yeah, it was true!
The Watchman of garden fed them during our absence. He built a little house for the dog's family near his house to taking care of those puppies.
Now we should think to choose 8 names!!!

Oh, I miss 2 of them in the photo!

The Last Project

Finally I gave my last project of this semester. Excuse me for the few days' absence during that time. I had to render my sheets and make the sample of my designing, so I was working hard. Now I am so tired of that and need some days for break then I will start to post my photos from Mashhad again.
You can see some parts of the project in the photo. Architectural Designin III was one of my memorable lessons that I could get the first score in the class. ;)
