Only slight edge wear to DJ ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; Color Photographs; 11.10 X 8.80 X 1 inches; 218 pages; A beautifully illustrated book, recounting the meetings and outcomes of an Architectual meeting held in Tehran, Iran in 2002. "In many ways, closed to the outside world since the 1979 Revolution, Iran remains a remarkably rich environment for architecture, both historic and contemporary. A large young population avidly seeks information on trends in the Western world, while the very active Iranian Cultural Heritage Organisation (ICHO) maintains high standards of intervention on the country's considerable array of monuments. It is in this context that the Architecture For Changing Societies, an international seminar, was created. The seminar was held on October 2002 in Yazd, Iran and was comprised of several Iranian and Muslim organisations, as well as a number of leading figures in contemporary architecture. Participants included Seyyed Mohammad Beheshti, head of the ICHO, as well as such internationally recognised figures as the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki and the American critic Charles Jencks. "
