The play of light and shadow in Iranian architecture in different parts of the building is eye-catching. Iranian architecture is a kind of combination and renovation of them. A grid of colored glass is placed on the ceiling facing the sky, and the reflecting walls, taken from old mirrors, are mechanically and movably circled around the bodies at a height higher than human height. A bicycle in the center of the space, which is connected to the mirror panels by electrical systems, moves the panels by pedaling people. The reflection of colored sun light in the moving mirror panels creates an indescribable visual space of light and color.
