July 25, 2018

TEHRAN – Two concept designs from Iranian companies are among the finalists at the 6th Annual Architizer A+Awards in New York.

The designs for the Tokyo Music Center from Hajizadeh & Associates and the Sadra Artist Forum in Shiraz created by Nextoffice are competing in the Unbuilt Cultural category. Both companies are located in Tehran.

“We decided to imagine a strategy to create an important urban plaza while keeping the music hall,” Hajizadeh & Associates said in an introduction to the design for the Tokyo Music Center published on the Architizer website.

“On the other hand, the development of a green space on the northern side of the site will create an attractive atmosphere,” it added.

Designs for the Museum of Forest Finn Culture in Svullrya, Norway and the UK Holocaust Memorial are also competing in the Unbuilt Cultural section.   

Over 300 designs from across the world are competing in the various categories of the largest awards program for architecture and products. Winners will be announced on July 30.
