Pahlavi National Library, Tehran

Authors: Stanislav Picek, Stanislav Švec.

The building (100 x 286 m, 9 stories) has a linear shape. Respecting the climate and the tradition, we have designed under 2 parallel wings the publicaly accesible Agora with an artificial brook. The roof and facades of upper floors are absorbing solar energy. We were already in the seventies seeking for energetical self – support of the building. Two towers are the part of cooling system.
