Parallelism or Intersection?
As a part of a culture that has undergone a multitude of historical changes, architecture can represent various views and thoughts, which can be contrary as the two cultures intersect. In this Armenian-Iranian structure, architecture is used as a symbol for two cultures and identities that are sometimes different and sometimes very similar. The people of the two countries would sometimes accept each other and sometimes have opposing beliefs; yet, they have always influenced each other throughout history, whether positively or negatively.
