CONTENT
About: The goal of this project is to understand and comprehend the philosophy of the Bahá'í faith and its literature. From this knowledge, I hope to investigate the issue of transforming a specific Bahá'í text into an architectural form. At this point, my job is not only to be an architect but also a translator. To be able to create an architectural language which is a derivative of the philosophy and the writings of the Bahá'í Faith.
