The Senate of Iran was the upper house legislative chamber in Iran from 1949 to 1979. A bicameral legislature had been established in the 1906 Persian Constitutional Revolution but the Senate was not actually formed until after the Iran Constituent Assembly, 1949, as an expression of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi's desire for more political power. The Senate House of Iran was designed by the Architect Heydar Ghiaï in 1955". The construction was led by Mr. Rahmat Safai, the dome being one of the most technically challenging projects in the entire endeavor.
