Tehran Now! is a project for thinking about products, services, and platforms that may prevent Tehran’s apocalyptic futures. This project is a parent project that can define and accomplish a series of workshops, studios, smaller projects, and other collaborations within itself.
All activities of this project can be interpreted from the lens of Futures Studies and Speculative Design. That’s why Tehran Now! is not concerned with solving the problems that may lead to an apocalyptic future for the city. Tehran Now! uses these unpleasant futures of the city as a tool to push for change in the forms we address these unpleasant futures. All the activities of this project are intertwined with three key characteristics: innovation aspects, a Futures-oriented approach, and an effort to confront the apocalyptic futures of Tehran.
