• About Argo Factory
  • فار EN
  • Argo Factory is a non-profit cultural institution, housed in a former drink manufacturing factory in Tehran. Argo Factory is part of Pejman Foundation's constellation of sites.

    Argo Factory was one of the major drink manufacturing factories in Iran during the 1960s and 1970s. Its construction dates back to early 1920s as one of the first industrial factories in Iran. In spite of its unique architectural features – high smokestacks and strategic geographical position at the heart of the city – the factory was taken for granted for many years and eventually turned into a tumbledown building for almost four decades. In 2016, Pejman Foundation acquired and reconstructed the Argo Factory and turned into one of its multiple sites.
