The Former Embassy of Iran in Washington, D.C. is located at 3003-3005 Massachusetts Avenue, in Washington, D.C.’s Embassy Row neighbourhood. Withdrawn, silent, and inaccessible it has been closed since the fall of the Shah, and the US embassy hostage crisis of 1979.
The lavish blue tile work, and mirrored ceilings of the interior are slowly crumbling. Only shadows move within the structure, as nature slowly reclaims it. The basic renovations enacted by the US government assist in preserving a partial ruin.
