To start a project, creativity and innovation are taken into account both in the designing of the plans and in the application of the materials and the technology related to –albeit with considering economic and executive constraints. The influential factors involved in the design of this project, including the dominant sunshine and disturbing rain and street noise pollution, have shaped the form of this statue, along with the beautiful landscape of Nahar-khoran forests and municipal regulations and requests of the employer.
Given that in my mind I was always interested in concrete due to the fluidity and form ability of this material, which can be traced in previous projects in the fountains, frescoes and boxes of concrete flowers, I decided to construct this building with exposed concrete. Also, using concrete to manufacture silos of Mr. Zahedi's flour mill was not a waste of experience, despite the executive's requirement.
Regarding the implementation difficulties, it should be noted that there were no experts to read the plans and in casting, which I tried to compensate with constant and continuous monitoring.
