Docomomo Iran
Tour: Visiting Vartan House
DATE: 11/3/2016
"Docomomo Iran organized a tour on March 11, 2016 to visit Tafazzoli House in Tehran. This house is designed by Vartan Hovanessian, one of the most famous Iranian modernist architects. At first Hadi Naderi, the secretary of Docomomo Iran, talked about Docomomo Iran and its visions and new activities. Then Mr. Majid Gharezadeh Spoke about the exhibition of “Photos of Historic Iran”, which has been held in the house recently. At last Ms. Azar Mirazaee started to introduce the house and its characteristics. This house was abandoned for years. Fortunately, it has been bought by Iranian Urban & Revitalization Corporation last year. The house has been reused to “The House of Discussions for the City and Architects”.

Docomomo Iran would like to thanks Dr. Mohamad-Saeed Izadi, board member of Docomomo Iran and the chair of Iranian Urban & Revitalization Corporation for his efforts for this house, and also for his supports for the tour."
