|AVIAN-INSPIRED ARCHITECTURE - SIMORGH (MASHHAD CITY ENTRANCE )|
At the entrance of the Tourist landmark city of Mashhad, Iran, this “living architecture” is inspired by the Pigeons of Imam Reza shrine, where tourists flock to take in the architecture & avian dwellers. Driving visitors are greeted by a 28 meter high pillar with moving wings powered when incoming vehicles drive over a subtle bump connected to system of cables & gears causing changes in Structure like a flying Bird.
Nestled amidst the ancient backdrop, this modern marvel stands out as both a tribute to one of the city’s historic attractions & a symbol of its importance in the world of tomorrow.
