To take advantage of Amman’s Mediterranean climate, the Iranian embassy is constructed of terraces of open and closed spaces in five different volumes that encourage airflow to create a cool environment inside. The structure evokes the urban environment of Amman, which is built on terraces on the hillsides. A walkway winds up to the embassy, its walls perforated with openings of different sizes spaced in an irregular pattern, creating a play of light and shadow.
