The first Pahlavi period is considered one of the most distinguished eras in terms of architecture and urban planning across contemporary Iranian history from Qajar to the present day. A study of this country's contemporary architecture reveals that this era's architecture depended on particular currents in the country. Huge changes have occurred in Iranian architecture and arts over the past two decades. Over this period, the architecture of 1920-1941 has distinct features that distinguish it from the architecture of its previous and even next eras.
One could not study the first Pahlavi architecture with no previous knowledge of modern arts and architecture, so the present study tries to point out the architectural tendencies and technologies used in the case studies by analyzing the symbols remaining from the area and review the first Pahlavi’s nationalism style to determine its level of success. Thus, the article will first discuss the formation of modern architecture in Iran and the influence of Western architecture on it and proceed to review the features of First Pahlavi architecture.
