Notes from the judges on the winning project
"Cedrus Residential holistically takes on social, political, environmental, contextual and living norms in Tehran, Iran. The project beautifully critiques the approach to increased sensitivities in Tehran while critiquing the language of urban form and the manifestation of form to the public realm. Cedrus Residential successfully asks the question: what can architecture become in Iran, challenging the political dogma of expression while respecting social norms. It is a wonderful, holistic and intellectually challenging project or world wide merit."
