Contrary to the typical architectural procurement process, Farzana describes the work she is engaged in as ‘very organic’, co-designing and co-creating with communities who are mostly self-funding any building that takes place. Accessible and responsible design is ensured using participatory, site-responsive and data-driven processes. Lari’s ‘barefoot social architecture’ develops through experimentation with traditional building methods and local materials. Madjdabadi prioritises the role of culture and innovative explorations of indigenous elements in her attention to the materials and methods of fabrication. Honouring the tradition of craftsmanship, the architect invited workers to cut and shape the wood pieces with approximated sizes and organic shapes – giving the building its name. A leading and original voice for Iranian architecture, she has lectured widely in countries including Italy, Austria, Greece, Serbia, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania.
