“自然の橋”

from IRIB Japanese Radio (2015年6月14日 芝田):

去年の秋ごろからでしょうか。テヘランの中心から少し北に行った辺りに、キラキラとまばゆい光りを放つ、大きな橋が完成しました。この橋は高速道路をまたぐようにして架けられており、イランで最初の歩行者専用の橋なのだそうです。この橋を設計したのは、何と弱冠26歳のイラン人女性です。橋は3階建てになっていて、外から見ると、内側が覗けるようで覗けません。中はどうなっているのかと、想像力が掻き立てられます。設計者のイラン人女性は、国際的な建築家に贈られる賞を受賞したとのことで、その後しばしば、新聞や雑誌などで彼女の写真を見かけるようになりました。イギリスのコンテストには、イランの制裁のために出場できなかったそうです。悔しそうなコメントを残していましたが、その悔しさをバネに、今後も活躍しそうな雰囲気の女性です。

khabalooo [via beautyofiran]: The new Tabiat bridge, and the brilliant architect behind it - Leila Araghian

“‘When the competition was announced to design this bridge, I was still a student. I was only 25 at the time. I didn’t even feel qualified to enter. And I assumed the project would be awarded to powerful people with connections. But Ali encouraged me. He told me: “If you design it, we will win.” So I submitted the design, and one month later I got a call. It was Ali. He told me that we’d won. I just remember staring down into an open drawer of my desk. I was excited. But I was also terrified. Designing it was one thing. Now we had to build it.’

Leila Araghian and Alireza Behzadi are the young designer and builder behind Tehran’s recently completed Tabiat Bridge. Construction of the bridge was completed in 2014 despite the difficulties of international sanctions. The bridge has become a cultural and physical centerpiece of Tehran, and Leila captured the imagination of the architecture world by winning the right to design it at the age of 26.”

“‘My father believed that confidence was the most important thing you could teach a child. Even when I was little, he would do things to make me feel important. One of my earliest memories is a taxi driver asking my father to put me on his lap, so he could fit one more passenger. But my father insisted that I deserved my own seat. He’d bring me to work with him and trust me with jobs. He’d take apart mechanical devices and ask me to reassemble them. If I made a mistake, he’d never punish me. He’d even help me hide my report card if I made a bad grade. He was mainly concerned with building my confidence to attempt new things, so that I could always learn by doing. Now as an adult, people call me crazy for attempting things that seem “out of my depth.” This bridge is one example. Nobody is prouder of this bridge than my father. He collects all the newspaper articles.’

“‘I was so scared when they were building it. There was always a doubt that it would work the same way that it did in my mind. When they sent me pictures of the construction, sometimes I wouldn’t even open the emails. I’d just move the images to a folder named “Bridge.” It’s surreal that this once existed in my mind. I’ve seen it one million times on a computer monitor. I know every single one of these pipes, and I remember the moment that I decided where to place them. Now I am so much smaller than something that once only existed in my imagination. I can stand inside of it. It feels like being inside a movie that you directed or a book that you wrote. And you can’t help but feel powerful.’

May all the people who lost their lives in the cowardly attack by ISIS in Tehran today rest in peace. ISIS, you will not scare us.
