La ville de Terre

























Yazd, old city, aerial photo 1975

The 3000 year old city of Yazd is long under a decaying process. The city's architectural typology is an outstanding ode to the "organic". To our flawless capacity to adapt. The harsh heat and aridity of the desert has produced a range of earthen architecture, interior courtyards and wind towers intrinsic with the qanat.
