Tehran Inspired By Liberty Place?

There is a new building in Tehran, Iran, that looks strikingly like Liberty Place in Center City, which was designed by Helmut Jahn of Murphy/Jahn Architects. The resemblance is obvious, and we can’t help but think the inspiration came from our very own Philadelphia landmark, as the architecture and design are incredibly similar. While there is really no proof deeming this as a copycat, we can certainly jump to our own conclusions. A tad bit bizarre? Maybe, but it’s also pretty flattering for our city; better yet for Helmut Jahn.
