CafeLitt 121: Modern Architecture in Iran

Thu 21 May 2009, 19:00, by Nima Razavi, at UQAM:315 Sainte-Catherine Est,Montreal (Map)
Modernism is one of the most important architectural movements of the last century. However, in comparison to the Western World, this movement occurred with a notable delay in Iran. Although, the Modern Movement in Iran started in the Qajar era, it did not reach its peak until during the first and second Pahlavi eras. Establishment of the Faculty of Fine Arts in University of Tehran in 1941 had a remarkable impact on this movement in Iran. The graduates of the University of Tehran and those from the European Universities also played important roles. This presentation is a brief overview of the Modern Movement in Iran during the Qajar and the Pahlavi dynasties.

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
