Carpet Museum of Iran
The museum's exhibition hall occupies 3,400 square meters (36,597 ft²) and its library contains 33,000,000 books.
The museum was designed by architect Abdol-Aziz Mirza Farmanfarmaian. The perforated structure around the museum's exterior is designed both to resemble a carpet loom, and to cast shade on the exterior walls, reducing the impact of the hot summer sun on the interior temperature.
