“Light, Sacred Concept in Iranian Culture”

An Iranian anthropologist has called for enhancement of nightlife in Tehran saying nightlife in the Iranian capital is not democratized as it is mainly possessed by the well-off families.


Nasser Fakouhi made the comments during a meeting dubbed “Tehran is not night city”.


A number of officials from Tehran Municipality’s Beautification Organization took part in the gathering which was held at the conference hall of Iranian Students’ News Agency in Tehran.


Fakouhi also called for the expansion of the interaction between Iranian academicians and urban managers in an effort to boost quality of life in Tehran.


Tehran University professor also said lighting along with security and transportation is key to nightlife.


He said in the modern global system it is not acceptable to have the capital city sleep as it must be connected to the global system.


Fakouhi underscored that lighting is a sacred concept in the Iranian culture and can be used in beautification and other functional projects.


He said the presence of people in the city creates security and security in urban spaces should not be necessarily established by police. Fokouhi also said lighting can significantly contribute to the establishment of security in urban spaces.
