Author :  Odyssey Babasadeghian
Editors :  Naghmeh Rastegar , Sara Ahmadi
Publication :  Kavosh-e Honar

Book Summary :

The author’s fundamental question about architecture was: how alive (superior) architecture can be presented to dead people? (dead people means, men who are involved with Mental engagement and are absent in the present moment.)

She answers this question :

My question had just one logical answer! it can’t!

First these humans have to become alive and live in the present moment, then, they hear the message of life and maybe search for the alive (superior) architecture and communicate with it. So instead of showing the physical image of the project in my mind, I decided, to first present the philosophy and the origin of the project in a text or small book, in order to explain its background, and then discuss the architecture.

This book has been written to express the philosophy, leads to a kind of architecture, (which in my view is superior architecture) and make it understandable for the readers. Therefore, in order to understand this architecture, first it’s philosophy must be understood and communicated. Otherwise, the architecture that is introduced at the end of the book as “superior architecture” may seem irrational, strange or meaningless, and readers will not properly correlate with it.
