Ferdowsi Residential Complex

The volume is transparent on the southern side. The vertical is followed by the horizontal void that turns into a yard, turning the closed spaces into semi-open and open spaces. The lobby on the bottom of the void connects the Amphitheaters to the gallery and yard. More
