Friday Mosque, UAE - Religious, educational and social facility


`Enclosed space, defined by walls, arcades and moulds is the most important element of Islamic architecture`(Y. Zaki) The proposed building describes a new philosophy for religious worship, based on traditional elements. Open to all cardinal directions, the building and its internal arrangement of spaces aim to welcome and host people. It is configured as an all day municipal institution for public, religious, educational and social facilities. The chosen radial liturgy adopts the equipoise of traditional Islamic architecture.
