Forget Dubai – Tehran is where it’s at. With Archis/Volume preparing an alternative guide to Iran’s largest city, local resident Ali Hoseini-Khamenei ranking 26th at Forbes’s list of most powerful people of 2010and it actually being the least expensive capital in the world, you must learn more about it as quick as possible.

Luckily, the Nai (in collaboration with Volume) knows what to do: organize a debate! January 20th, 20:00, NAi Dependance, Ali Madanipour as key speaker, Wouter Vanstiphout as moderator/debater – click here for more info.

For those who can’t make it: don’t worry, another debate will be held later this year – in Tehran, that is. Don’t forget to check the Tehran Times for both local and global news updates before you go if you are planning to attend.
