In all certainty one may say that the traditional Iranian hot areas architecture is unique in the world. This uniqueness arises from the attention of the native dwellers and architects to the climate conditions and the proper exploitation of these conditions, observance of functional demands, and meeting the cultural needs of the local people and society. The enclosures holding the spheres, the central yards, the use of deeper buildings at their ground sites, smaller and deeper windows, among many other things, all result from a close attention to the climate conditions and adaptation. In addition, the problem of microcosms has also been added to these climatic conditions. The problem of shrouding dust, dust particles, is also part and parcel of such climate conditions. The conduct of the hospital imposes some specific things onto both the architecture and the offshoots of the hospital main structure, such as the installations, and instruments and devices, among other things, or even one may also refer to the interrelationship amongst various wards of the hospital such as the curative & clinical, Para-clinical, surgery, and so on with the support sections, and the provision or backup departments supplying the installations. The combination of these two aspects, i.e. the native architecture and the hospital needs became the basis for the design of Ya Zahra [of Dezful] hospital.
