Embassy of Iran
Amman, Jordan
To take advantage of Amman’s Mediterranean climate, the Iranian embassy is constructed of terraces of open and closed spaces in five different volumes that encourage airflow to create a cool environment inside. The structure evokes the urban environment of Amman, which is built on terraces on the hillsides. A walkway winds up to the embassy, its walls perforated with openings of different sizes spaced in an irregular pattern, creating a play of light and shadow.
