Project Title


Kourosh Abdi
The design program of Gerdgard restaurant has been defined to attract people of different nationalities and diverse cultures, in the second largest city of Iran, Mashhad, and in a historical context that is being revived. The need to design multifunctional but integrated spaces was important in the project in order to respond to various programs such as gatherings, shows, public and private meetings simultaneously. design process: Fields vs Space: In order to achieve the most optimal answers according to the diversity and complexity of the program, the early stage of design started with the definition of a generative design process. instead of the initial establishment of spaces, fields were composed of different generative forces. The forces of any field were indicating the degree of inclination or direction of expansion, the required spatial capacity and the limits of flexibility in combination to its surrounding space. Then fields grew from a single point through an interactive-interaction process and continuously changed directions and shapes at fluid boundaries to reach an equilibrium final result. Forms and Shells: After the equilibrium of spatial fields, their fluid boundaries were translated into form by shells. The main shell was obtained from the metamorphosis of a conical sector, in the middle of which, a rotating plate is placed on the water to evoke the empty central space and the element of water in Iranian architecture. This plate can be combined with any of its neighboring spaces in a different way through its rotation and have multifunctional rules such as a screen or an entertainment area. The main shell separates the boundary of the service space and guest area also rises from the ground along the path of people’s movement to provide a dynamic and continuous space with the help of the second shell, changing from closure to openness and from compression to expansion. The second shell is also multi-functional: a bench for sitting inside, the dividing line between inside and outside, and also plays the role of reception. At the end of the hall, a special space is designed by the transformation of an Iranian arch in a way that evokes traditional Iranian spaces along the path, but it has modern qualities reversely in the opposite direction of the inside of the space.
