Tropical Garden — Iran Mall

The Tropical Garden is a botanical forest environment designed to surprise, educate and delight. Set atop the Iran Mall, the largest planned mixed-used retail, hotel and luxury entertainment complex in the growing capital city of Tehran. Inspired by the pistachio, a treasured symbol of Iran’s rich cultural heritage, the tropical indoor forest sits inside adjoining transparent oval glass shells, on a large reflective pond on the mall’s rooftop. Visible from adjacent entertainment areas, dynamic pistachio shapes are mirrored and reflected on the surrounding surface. A contemporary honeycomb glass façade allows sunlight to penetrate into the deepest levels of the botanical garden’s temperature-controlled environment.

 Visually unique, the dome’s structural frame represents a growing tree and the natural cycle of life. Verdant and green, the frame shapes the interior forest, with roots growing deep into the earth at lower levels and large leafy tree branches animating and shaping the upper levels. Digital 3D mapping of animals animate surfaces of trees and vegetation throughout.
