Milad Tower
Tehran, Iran
The project was initially defined as a telecommunications tower, but after a thorough investigation, its potential as a city plaza in a broader urban development for the capital was realised. It has an octagonal base, symbolising traditional Persian architecture, and includes an antenna mast, a 12 storey main building and a four-storey lobby at its base. It stands at 435 m from the base to antenna tip. There is a revolving restaurant, open and closed viewing platforms, an art gallery, technical floors and a sky dome at its summit. The lobby houses access facilities, shopping and food court areas, with a pond at the tower shaft entrance. The Tower functions as a sophisticated urban attraction and city plaza.
