Dear Sir
Immaginavo che l'architettura inglese abbia avuto un progresso molto piu importante e piu di avanguardia .
Io ancora penso agli architetti come James Stirlin e piu indietro costruzioni di Nash etc ...Io sono un architetto Italo Iraniano ed insegno nelle facolta' di architettura di Tehran ed intorni .
Vogliamo avere dei esempi piu abitabile e piu sostenibile per l'uomo povero di oggi e non delle costruzioni che uno si sente in disagio ad avvicinarli perche appartengono ad una qualcuni ma a tutti .
