Qorveh House by ReNa Design

Qorveh House

Architecture has a long standing history that despite the popular belief is not limited to the west. In fact, this art originates to Mesopotamia just as every other thing.

While we see breakthroughs of the western culture on a daily basis on all sorts of media, we seldom ever pay attention to the artistic and design news that comes out of the cradle of civilization. In this post, I will be sharing a sample of modern iraninan architecture (which i disagree with by the way) to show that Iranians are talented and also invested in the industry.
