Tehran city theatre.
This magnificent cylindrical building was built in late 1960s. The designer was Mr.Bijan Anasaari and the architecture was performed by one of the most famous Iranian architects, Mr. Ali Sardaar Afkhami. In the first glance, it seems to be a 2-story building but it consists of 3 levels with 7 performance halls for theatre and music festivals. the capacity of the main halll is for 574 people and the smallest one is for about 40 audiences. The architecture is a combination of the ancient and modern Persian styles: The columns remind the Archeamenid coloumns of Persepolis and the round elements at the top of the building is a modern copy from the Ilkhanid style. Like many other Persian buildings, the facade consists of the yelow brick and colorful tiles , but in a modern eye-catching style. Tehran city theatre was governed under the supervision of the Nationa Radio & Television of Iran before 1979, in the Shah's era and after the revolutuion it was devoted to the Ministry of Islamic guidance. Opened to public in 1971,this complex is located in the city centre near a small park and is still one of the most popular and busy places in Tehran.
The sculpture on the right is "Shirin & Farhad" (The Persian mythic lovers) by Parviz Tanavoli made in 1960s(?).
