RUNNER #14 - Taher Asad-Bakhtiari
The Pond House is an indoor atrium with fountain central to traditional Iranian architecture, which serves as a cooling chamber during the hot summer months. It is a space ringing of flowing water where guests are invited to lounge in a contemplative atmosphere. Asad-Bakhtiari was inspired by the Pond House of his old family residence in Tehran to create a unique collection of modern-day tribal tapestries.
