Design of islamic revolution and holy defense museum - Location: Sun city - Iran

We are going to design one museum called Sun city located in the southern part of Tehran Capital of Iran ...

- The Sun City has framed in the shape of circle in the center of Imam Khomeini cemetery (the leader of Iran revolution) and important national spaces such as Iranian International Exhibition and cemetery of Iran and Iraq war martyrs have been built beside this building. 

1: Aftab Namayeshgah
2: Enghelab islamic and 
      Defa moghadas museum
3: Imam Khomeini
4: Beheshte -e-Zahra
- City managers took into consideration to convert this city into cultural, pilgrimage, tourism and exhibition base. Consequently, the arrangement of their use was in the shape of beam located in the center of Imam Khomeini cemetery until they can establish more solidarity to different operations of the city ... But unlike city managers' programs, there is no solidarity of the suitable space in this city and the passing of Persian Gulf highway from the middle of this city has divided it into two separate part and the suitable walking access has not been predicted in this area as well. 

One question! :

Now we want to desig n one museum, the host of so many visitors.
However, because of some accesses mainly take place in highways, how can museum have relation with citizens who rarely pass by this place?
How is it possible to transfer isolated crowd of people who are not far from each other in distinctive spaces?  
And as a result we increase the boom and prosperity of present  collections.
historical experience :
We had this experience in traditional markets of Iran.... 
Moving shafts operated as a connector of some important city places which people also provided  their own necessaries when they passed by these places .The difference is that achieved provisions are not commodity but it is a kind of cultural product and a sort of awareness. 



Cultural sidewalk +  plaza =  Museum  

We will make some changes in city structure and construct a cultural sidewalk , we connect these four main city spaces and we will build one city square in stead of museum. 



Population :

This is a good excuse for us to connect important urban spaces can be conection bridge for complex ,for this purpose we locate museum building in the path walk.  
as a result audience of museum will be promoted to wide range of urban users and urban pedestrians have opportunity to visit part of the museum for free without getting into the museum.     
New plaza :
Under whatever pretext other paths on the sidelines site is drawn into the site. an urban plaza added to the Sun city . in this region there is not  an acting urban plaza .  
We simply divide the project in half until branching directions from city meet each other in this place. 
Consequently, the building will provide the chance for presentation a part of its inside content for general viewers and the part of the people of society who did not intend to visit the museum, therefore, we have the role of informing the society about historical events...
It has been drawn the broad volume light inside the operating spaces into the lowest surface with locating 15 central yards in the surface of building ( just like central yards in existing buildings in old cities of Iran),  and in this way a pleasurable environment was constructed with suitable  shadow in broad surface of building  and it will be converted into the park with planting trees and pleasant stopover for  pedestrians  passed by it. 
The building is inside the city or the city is inside the building :
It will be possible to see Imam Khomeini and war martyrs cemetery in the north part of the building with stratifying the landscape in the middle of building and connecting it to the upside of the building. building. 


The place of war museum has the close relationship with cemetery of war martyrs of its surrounding ... Finally, It was decided to depict the framework and landscape construction of Holy defense collections with the concept of martyrs tomb made special memory in the mind of citizens :
