BANDAR ABBAS TELEVISION CENTER
IRAN RADIO -TV CENTERS | 1968
The time limit: the time constraint was 60 days.
As an architect, I took this project as a unique challenge and opportunity to experience designing directly on the job site and starting the building with sketches! Spontaneous decisions on Architecture and structure was an experience I always sought! the inspiration for the main architectural concept was to satisfy local atmospheric conditions, which led to thick exterior walls , the minimal openings and the overall height of the building.
The walls measuring 70 to 100 cm in thickness were constructed 50 cm in height at a time and consisted of three layers: 20cm brick walls, 30 – 35 cm of dry stone wall and concrete between them.
When completed, the maximum diameter of conic domes was 14 meters.
Three facts motivated the architect to choose the Design Concept: Location, Climate, Time limit.
