•• Charsou bazar, Tehran, Iran
Downtown is the busiest and the most interesting part of each city.
In downtown Tehran we have historic landmarks, governmental organizations, shopping malls, cultural areas, embassies and educational centers;
this shows its high capacity for large commercial complexes.
The idea for Charsou Bazaar came from combining commercial, cultural and social activities. .
The location, Hafez and Jomhouri junction, is also important to the whole idea of Charsou Bazaar because it is placed among special product markets such as mobile, electronics, home appliances, computers on one hand and restaurants, cinemas, coffee shops, etc. on the other.
We have divided the building into 3 parts: the transparent part at the bottom which embedded the bigger shops, the semi-transparent part which contains the smaller shops and the transparent part at the top which consists of restaurants, cinemas and bookshop.
It also consists of a void which rotates in each floor and makes it so that we can see all the other floors from whichever floor we stand.
