Happy Nowruz!

Nearing the end of the Persian year, we are already getting excited for next year’s projects, including a museum, school, and ranger station project!
Persian New Year is called Nowruz and is celebrated in March.
Now/no meaning “new” from the old Persian “nava” and
Ruz meaning “day” in modern Persian, and originating from the word for “light” (roj).

 

Norouz is celebrated on the Spring Equinox, and welcomes the new year as the sun sits over the equator and spreads evenly across the Earth.
We are welcoming the new day, and the new light of Spring this year, with a mind for the environment and evolving toward more sustainable and ecological architecture.

 

We wish you all the best in beginning a new chapter!

South of the Caspian Sea, the mountains are covered with a blanket of jungle, a natural reserve protected by UNESCO . This is the land of the wolves and leopards, once called Hyrcania by the Greeks (taken from the Darius’ Behistun inscription Verkana).   

We are honored to be a taking on a new museum project in the beautiful northwestern province of Golestan! In this way, we can help contribute to the preservation of history and culture from this special region of Iran. More updates soon!
