ABSTRACT Iran’s traditional architecture is one of the examples of sustainable architecture that has been trying to meet the needs of the people of its era. Access to ice in hot and dry summers was one of the needs of residents of the desert region. Therefore, architects designed icehouse, a space for ice production in the winter, storage and consumption in the summer. Icehouses have three main parts: ice reservoir, ice-making pond, and shadowing wall. The ice-making process was carried out in…
