Main concept of project
It is conceptual indication and geo imagination and mountainous structure of Azerbaijan, especially Tabriz city.
• this has been realized by a rhythm of vertical elements of light (long and short pillars), each are a metaphor of a standing man (child, old, and young man, man and woman)
• Creation of a man-oriented architecture with man-oriented approach has been main distresses of designers in the project.
• Intensity, overlapping, correlation and rhythm of these vertical elements of light have been unified in overall form and form a united totality, wavy mass and connected case. This design portrays a picture of mountains around Tabriz which are symbol of persistence and national religious enthusiasm of Azerbaijan at mind of Iranian people during history of this land full of ups and downs from constitution period to Islamic revolution and war.
Consider to form of the problem which employer was looking for a project with low cost and use of elements to create an urban landscape with 12 meters height, approach of designers was to create a clear, current and light architecture with human scale far from masonry, cross (which prevents visual durability) and high costs constructions.
