As part of the inaugural Sharjah Architecture Triennial, architects Hamed Khosravi and Roozbeh Elias-Azar with artist Nazgol Ansarinia reflect on spatial imaginaries of domestic spaces in the city of Tehran. They reinterpret the codes and protocols of a typical apartment block through the fragmentation of its constituent parts and its reassembly—a process that looks to enable a continuous revolution that begins at home.

Curated by Adrian Lahoud, the inaugural edition of the Triennial sets out to rethink fundamental questions about architecture and places the relationship between generations at the heart of our struggle to avert the climate crisis. Both the opening programme and the participating projects demonstrate the diverse strands of enquiry within the theme, and suggest multiple ways of addressing architecture’s pivotal role in shaping our co-existence with others against extractive modes of living.
