Thanks for visiting the site! We put tehranshake together several years ago and really enjoyed the great discussions and networks that came out of it. In 2011, we moved on to a different stage in our careers (we’re teaching and doing research now in civil engineering and environmental design). We haven’t been working on the site since then. We’ve left the site up just because we still make new friends through it. Feel free to browse, but please note that most of the information is outdated!
Here’s the original content:
Dear new friend, khoush aamadi,
This blog is intended as a multidisciplinary communication among individuals and professionals of ideas that address Tehran’s infrastructure related problems in a broad sense, such as earthquake hazard reduction, transit infrastructure solutions, pollution reduction, social-economical obstacles, etc. It is our hope that these ideas can be translated into action using community based synergy and spreading awareness. It is this blog’s intent to bring together diverse views free of geographic and political boundaries, which all too often hinder these important dialogues.
If you have thoughts on the content of this blog, ideas for expanding or focusing, or wish to begin new discussion, please feel free to comment on this page. We will be looking forward to your ideas!
We are honored that you have visited our blog. Enjoy your time here and stay in touch
