● This work is based on the general structure of a device called Shahr-e-Farang. Shahr-e-Farang was a kind of entertainment in the past, in the form of a quadrangle box, a portable four-wheel device with a round hole in its wall. Old photographs of the most famous people and places in the world should be seen through the hole. In the designed structure, images of the prominent figures of the Constitutional Movement of Iran are presented to remind and familiarize more people with the events and important persons of the history. The Constitutional Movement of Iran was a collection of attempts and events that led to the signing of the Constitutional Order by the King of Iran (Muzaffar al-Din Shah Qajar) on August 5, 1906, and eventually led to the formation of a National Parliament and the adoption of the first constitution of Iran.
The right choice of material (Concrete), in addition to creating harmony in space, has also led to endurance and durability of work.
