Hooman Balazadeh in a short interview with the client regarding the conclusion of the workshop stated that the dialogues between participants and the client are amongst the most important features of the workshop.
In his opinion, such workshops are a great opportunity to focus on the issue of habitats in a specific geography and climate and in an abstract state and hopefully Kermanshah workshop, as a second experience of Villa Magazine and AADesign Atelier, will prove to assign more time to investigating the field. Mrs. Dehghan, currently busy with approving final structural drafts of the winning project, evaluated the overall experience of the workshop as successful and announced that in a few weeks and after approving the final civil revisions the design will finally enter the executive stage.
In the introduction ceremony, the invitees were presented with the concepts and purposes of the new workshop and discussed its different dimensions, potentials, and capabilities both in the field of architecture and charity. In the end, a meeting with the presence of Mojtaba Jabbari, Behrooz Abbasi, Alireza Jahromi and Amirabbas Aboutalebi took place where financial and moral support of the workshop was discussed.
