the alien series tries to put some of the treasured achievements of Iranian architecture into the photos taken since March by NASA’s Perseverance rover to challenge our analysts’ minds. “What will be the origin of the future identity of the human being?” Earth? maybe.’ mentions mohammad hassan namdari. “Man will seek his future as much as he has sought his past, and these two elements are common to the unity of nations. the architect adds.
