Yazd City, the capital of Yazd province, is a historic city in Iran which is located about 500 miles southeast of Tehran. In a Farsi source, the date of the foundation of this city is linked to the time of Alexander as he ordered the construction of a prison in this location to keep Persian princes. Many features of the indigenous (or clay) architecture are present in this province in their best forms and shapes (--sometimes it is referred to as Yazd school of architecture ), such as clay castles, Jam'a mosque, traditional houses, wind-catching towers (baadgeirs), baazaars, dome and arch by mud-bricks, koochehs ( narroe alleyways), ground, water reservoirs, and qanat irrigation system. Because of a modernization process in Iran from about 1950s, however, the clay architecture in Iran, as well as in Yazd, has been abandoned and historic buildings and structures have been demolished to be replaced by apartment complexes and by modern buildings made up of metal skeleton and concrete blocks. The present series seeks to collect images of the survived, architectural features in the historic cities of Iran before they are completely wiped out in a modernization process. Volume VII of this series invites viewers to A Visual Journey To Yazd City for a review of the samples of the clay ( indigenous) architecture in this historic city, which is in the process of being registered by UNESCO.
