Abstract: 

Even though the design of Vali Asr Mosque, in adjacent to city theatre of Tehran, was completed and the construction project was fulfilled up to the first level in the previous urban management system of Tehran, the project stopped and completely changed in the new management system. Yet, what is the problem of the previous Vali Asr Mosque design? In order to gain experience for similar future cases, it is necessary to answer the above mentioned question. This research aims to improve the criterions and attributes of Mosque Design in institutes of decision making, policy making and executives in order to gain better results in this field of design. The method of this research is discursive and analytical and case study is used as the strategy of enquiry.
This research has found the reason of change of the Vali Asr Mosque design in the attitude change of management system towards the definition, the position and the original values of Mosque as a worship space. Instead of being a religious recognition, Mosque of this attitude is considered as a passive and adaptable building in regards to its surrounding space.
The new design has also been influenced by current international design styles which gain their theoretical roots of creating art pieces from secularism, de-constructivism and anarchism. These approaches which are in complete inconsistency with Islamic wisdom and Art Philosophy, have unfortunately entered our contemporary styles of Architecture and urbanism, and now are aggressing their way in to religious buildings and Mosque design as the most important elements of our urban design.
It is hoped that the planners, policy makers and custodians of religious buildings and Mosques could take a lesson from these cases and state laws, strategic regulations, practical solutions and correct supervision to prevent Idol construction instead of Mosque construction in the land of Muslims.
