In 2022, I have been designing and building a sustainable off-grid prototype, a vernacular-inspired living space located in the heart of natural elements in Damavand-Iran that introduces a Farm-villa prototype with a passive energy use and environmental-friendly design approach with my old friend @bzsadat Stanford postdoctoral graduated and former energy technologist @google research.
The practice is based on a theoretical research program I have done at the Sheikh Bahaei Research Institute supported by Mazandaran University and @unesco United Nations National Commission-Iran. The research program investigates current conflicts of democratized villas in Iran which is between "hazard to the environment" and "human needs to retreat and escape from the city life." The purpose is obviously improve people’s psychological wellbeing.
"Grateful for the guidance and inspiration of Prof Rana Zadeh, specialized in evidence based and human centered healthcare design from @cornelluniversity whose expertise and passion for sustainability helped me bring to life a prototype of an off-grid villa nestled in the heart of nature."
