A stack of four cubes, Zomorrod 11 stands firmly at the heart of a traffic junction in Tehran. The design has incorporated the use of geometric brick pattern modules following a strategy by which the exterior façade of the building stretches inside and forms many elements of the interior; from the lowest parking level at -5 through to the top. The mobile brick panels not only provide an ever changing image of the building on the outside, they also enable the user to control the amount of sunlight that flows into the office spaces.
