In This volume of Manzar magazine which was the third one internationally published we talk about the city beautiful conference which was an honorary opportunity to get acquainted with João Nunes, the Portuguese landscape architect. His presences in Tehran lead to an exclusive interview with Manzar magazine. He is a diligent theorist best known for his projects all over the world; but the ideas behind his theories made him special for the magazine. As Bernard Lassus wrote to me, landscape architecture is a future field in which people have a new definition for “place”. In this case, “place” is a flowing matter which is obtained gradually through a period of time. Landscape is a profession that has made this meaning the basis of the projects. João Nunes has also theorized this experience in Atlantic coasts, far from Europe. For Nunesh, time is different forms of the earth that he designs; it can’t be seen. The Iranian landscape in this volume is specified to natural scenes in iran. There exists a salt lake, located alongside Kashan- Semnan ancient way. This spot is itself a landscape while making landscape. The white light reflection of the salt in the heart of the deep dark night creates a magnificent scene in the endless desert, an unforgettable scene near the Maranjanb inn (caravan-serai) of Safavieh era. Its parched surface is so rigid that remains still in the sand storms and desert cyclones contrary to the falling sands of the desert. The lake does not permit any living creature grow in, so there is no evidence of sand masses or thistles, only white sheets of salt and jagged mountains in the background. The white polygons of the lake are rhythmically spread to the horizon creating a unique and natural scene just like Damavand, Khazar and Persian Gulf. In this photo “Seyed Mohamad Bagher Mansouri” has selected a considerable frame for narrating the scene.
