TEHRAN – A collection of rough sketches by a number of veteran Iranian architects is currently on display in an exhibition at Tehran’s Rouge Gallery.
 
Entitled “Handmade”, works by architects who were once students of the celebrated Iranian architect, sculptor and painter Hushang Seyhun (1920-2014) are being shown, curator Faryar Javaherian told the Persian service of Honaronline, a Persian news website on Saturday.
 
The works belong to Ali-Akbar Saremi, Hossein Sheikheddin, Iraj Kalantari, Fereidun Badr, Hossein Amanat, Nader Ardalan, Faramarz Sharifi, Bahram Farivar Sadri and several others, she added.
 
It was Seyhun who taught his students to communicate with their surroundings through architecture and the result was the primary sketches of architecture, said Saremi who was attending the opening ceremony.
 
Seyhun was noted especially for his innovative and creative architectural designs. The mausoleum of Avicenna in Hamadan, the mausoleum of Nader Shah in Mashhad and the tomb of poet Omar Khayyam in Neyshabur were designed by Seyhun.
 
Prominent filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami was among the visitors who attended the opening ceremony of the exhibit.
 
The exhibit will be running until September 1 at the gallery located at No. 7, second alley, off Hassan Seif St., in the Shahrak-e Gharb District.
