Hassan Abad Square
Tehrān, Iran
Hassan Abad Square was built in the 1930s in a neo-classical style. Its four corners were originally occupied by four identical buildings, but in 1963 the southeast segment was demolished to make way for a bank. The present redevelopment of the square is offered as a more appropriate treatment of the inherited built fabric. The programme has included the renovation of the approach to the square - through the metro station and road underpass - and the provision of new office space within a modern glazed addition set on top of one of the old masonry structures.
