Résumé
Undoubtedly, some modern movements, which began in Western countries, have also affected other regions of the world. Iran is one of those countries affected by modernity, which creates a challenge to traditional ingrained thoughts and lifestyles. Architecture in Iran has undergone a number of radical modifications, which have resulted in many attempts to achieve authenticity. That is why contemporary Iranian architecture can be classified into 4 different periods with regard to the challenge of balancing a modern approach with authenticity. As tectonic developments results in faster, low-priced and efficient construction methods, lightness has become an important indicator of modern tectonics. In order to deal with the challenge of combining authenticity and modernity, the concept of modern lightness appears in a very distinctive way in Iran. This study is based on a hypothesis, which is designed to prove whether the modern light architecture of the 4th generation of architects in Iran is authentic, or not. A model of modern lightness has been proposed with reference to interviews with seven pioneers of the new generation of architects and observations and analysis have been carried out as part of the 60 project. It has been discovered that there are many authentic characteristics in the architecture of these pioneering architects

Mots clés : Modern tectonics, Authenticity, 4th generation of contemporary Iranian architects, Lightness
