#Part4 : In #1941 , with the formation of the Allied forces during #WWII , Reza Shah was forced out of his throne and exiled by the British and Russians who occupied Iran in order to clear Iran’s railroads off Germans in order to use them to deliver sources to the #USSR . The #Pahlavi Regime was facing extinction and the #Allies seeing no other replacement for Reza Shah, agreed to put the crown prince, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, in his place. This instability caused a delay in the nation building project of the Pahlavi Regime. It was not until the late 40s that monument reconstruction began once again. One of the major #architects who took over many of these public projects during the early second Pahlavi era was Houshang Seyhoun. #Seyhoun is known as the master of generating new and experimental forms inspired by traditional Iranian architectural #geometry and western #brutalism . The following four projects are all designed by Seyhoun from late 40s to early #60s .
1- Ibn Sina Mausoleum in Tehran
2- #Nader Shah Mausoleum in #Tehran
3- Tomb of Omar #Khayyam in #Nishapur
4- Tomb of #Kamal -ol-Molk Nishapur
