This Marvel Temple in Iran Elegantly Embraces The Lush Green Nature | Arash Kashkooli


Arash Kashkooli has visualised a beautiful and serene temple- named 'Marvel Temple'- in the heart of the forest in Tehran, Iran.

The architect drew inspiration from the surrounding greenery and utilised locally available materials to create this ethereal temple. Read more about the project below at SURFACES REPORTER (SR):
