The Book “Chalabi Oghloo Monastery and Tomb: An experience in Renovation and Restoration”

Published in 1388

Chalabi Oghloo Historic Complex is a construction dating back to the Mongol Ilkhanid dynasty and is located in the city of Soltanieh. The complex consists of a tomb and a monastery, and was built in commemoration of Aref Chalabi Oghloo, Molavi’s grandson, and Baha-od-Din-e-Valad’s son.

The complex has been subject to several renovations and restoration which have raised some criticism in recent decades.

This book presents a report of studies and renovations that took place between 1378 and 1385 in solar calendar. These operations include studying, recognizing, designing, and renovating and restoring the complex, many of which feature interesting points and some new techniques in the country’s renovation activities.

The objective behind publishing this report was not only to record and transfer renovation methods, but also to provide the opportunity for the societies of scholars, architects, and people who renovate historic buildings of the country.

The Book “Architecture of details”

Published in 1393

The book “Component Architecture” is a collection over one hundred architectural details which have been designed and constructed by Mohammad Reza Nikbakht during the years he had been running Zandigan architecture company. This book is comprised of eighteen chapters each of which is allocated to various details which have been performed in a particular project. These eighteen projects which have been chronologically ordered in the book date back to the period between 1379 and 1392.

The details collected in this book involve diverse architectural elements ranging from railings and shades to fireplaces and handles below each of which there are pertaining pictures and plans. Along with these documents, there are also technical notes regarding the building material and methods mentioned in order to facilitate the comprehension of the significant points concerning design and construction of the details. Noteworthy is that architectural and in some cases even artistic approaches applied in the design of these details have distinguished this book from its corresponding counterparts.

The book has been published in square copies in 250 pages, and as the writer asserts in the preface, other volumes will be consecutively published in the future.
