Annotation: 

The article is devoted to the architecture of contemporary mosques in Iran. A summary of the historical development of the architectural mosque type in Iran from the emergence of Islam up to the end of the XIX century is offered. The main attention is paid to the analysis of the modern architectural morphogenesis from the early XX century to the present time when liberal politics has led to the author's interpretations of the original provisions of traditional Muslim religious architecture. The authors provide an overview of architectural structures of mosques built in Iran in the XX century and offer an analytical comparison of modern compositions with traditional architectural schemes.
