In Tehran at the northern part of the district 3, in vicinity of
Shariati St., a 3800 sqm plot area, the current location of the
Cinema Farhang, is the proposed location of this important
center of cultural cinematic complex.
The project is generally divided into three main Retail,
Central Public Terrace and Movie Theaters.
Both retail spaces and movie theaters are separately located
by the central public terrace with the dual role connecting
them and also acts as an urban public space which causes
a link between urban space of Shariati St. and the Park at
western part of the project through a wide stairway.
The volumetric structure of this project is derived from the
idea of the dome and specifically the Persian Orchin dome
which is formed by the placement of the movie theaters and
This complex includes 12 movie theaters with 150,250,350
and 500 seats capacity with the ability of becoming a 1000
seats auditorium to meet the needs of its public events.
