Influential in the design of Gonbad-e-Mina Plantarium

The largest 3-D planetarium in the Middle East, called Gonbad-e-Mina located at Abbas-abad neighborhood of Tehran, is designed as a sphere showing all stars, planets and other celestial bodies for entertainment and educational purposes.

The planetarium, which is one of a kind and the largest in the Middle East, offers visitors a view of the sky projected on the ceiling. There is a projector at the center of the planetarium and separate projectors for the Sun, the Moon and other planets and stars. The projectors are operated by motors whose speed can be increased or decreased.

A planetarium is a theatre built primarily for presenting educational and entertaining shows about astronomy and the night sky, or for training in celestial navigation.

Adoora has been influential in the design of Gonbad-e-Mina Plantarium & Science center as it has been responsible for the design and installation of entrance doors.
These doors are custom-built large curved doors with a wide opening appropriate for a building of this magnitude. The specialized design of these doors gives this structure a unique feature.
Besides the design, high-tech methods have been employed in the installation of the doors, appropriate for a crowded building such as this.

Collaboration with Bank Shahr

Bank Shahr was established in 2009 by the municipalities of Tehran and other major cities. Supported by capital of IRR 1600 billion, the organization was initially authorized by the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) to operate as a Financial and Credit Institution. Bank Shahr was awarded a full banking permit by the CBI in 2010.

The aim of the founding shareholders was to provide modern, efficient banking services to private individuals and businesses, and to deliver essential funding for development and infrastructure projects across the country.

Bank Shahr has an impressive track-record of supporting many municipalities across Iran, providing liquidity for a diverse range of projects. By working in partnership with the senior directors of Tehran and other large cities, we have played a key role in enhancing their operational capabilities.

Adoora’s new strategy to pursue large scale international projects has landed it with a major contract that would otherwise have been executed by foreign companies. One example of this is the installation of automatic doors for portable buildings used by Shahr Bank of Iran throughout the country. Portable buildings require an extensive network of after-sale services nationwide and although there are many companies producing and maintaining automatic doors in Iran, it is Adoora that can provide such comprehensive services in different and remote areas around the country. Adoora has branches in all provinces throughout the country providing the company with the unique ability to distribute and maintain its products.

Iran’s largest Pedestrian Bridge Inaugurates in Tehran

Tabiat Bridge is the largest pedestrian bridge built so far in Iran. Located in north of Tehran, it connects two public parks by spanning over Shahid Modarres, one of the major highways of the city. ‘Tabiat’ means ‘Nature’ in Persian language.

The bridge is about 270 meters long and consists of a 3 dimensional truss with two continuous levels that sits on three tree shape columns. There are two platforms on top of the main columns forming the 3rd level viewpoints. All the levels are connected to each other by stairs and multiple ramps, providing multiple paths throughout the bridge to get from each level to another. Even though the bridges are usually considered as structural projects, here the approach is more architectural.

We are proud to present Adoora Co. has been participated in this unique structure by implementation of special curve doors. Accommodation and compatible design with overall theme of the bridge structure are what Adoora Co have done proficiently on this project.
