Travail en cours
Farzaneh's research is focused on the interplay of new mobility practices and emerging urban spaces. Her PhD research sought to identify the levers of change in order to reinvent the notion of automobility beyond perpetuating car system, and as aggregate of autonomy and mobility.
With the premise that mobility questions are at the heart of challenges towards healthier cities, she is currently contributing to a research agenda at the Habitat Research Center (EPFL) focused on healthy urban futures.

 “Blue Barrier: On City Form and Forms of Dwelling” 2018
Synopsis: Blue Barrier reconstructs the story of an urban highway recently inaugurated in the city of Tehran. The 11-kilometer elevated highway was presented and celebrated by the official media as "the most prestigious production of Iranian engineering", as a "work of art embodied in concrete". It sits closely to the residential buildings and offers them a unique view of perpetual car traffic. According to the official statistics, its cost could have financed 43 kilometers of underground metro – that is one third of the city's existing metro network. Blue Barrier looks into the interplay of the city's form and its forms of inhabiting, the physical space and imaginaries of inhabitants.
