Architect Hooshang Seyhoun

Check out these sketches of natural and architectural scences from the villages of Iran by one of the best Iranian architects, Hooshang Seyhoun. His power in sketching and paintings is just incredible; in 1972, his works were exhibited along Dali and Picasso at an art exhibition in Massachusetts University.  The picture on the cover of this post is a memorial structurre at the tomb of one of the greatest persian poets called Khayyam, which was designed by Seyhoun in 1962. If you are not familiar with Persian art, architecture and poetry simply look at this structure; because it is a perfect manifistation of pure persian art and classic literature. Unfortunately after the 70s revolution in Iran, Seyhoun left the country for good and that marked the end of his proffessional career inside Iran.
