Description
An experimental mosque design diverging from the conventional and established regional codes with reference to Bauhaus and de Stijl aesthetics. The design is inspired by the Kufi style of calligraphy and the whole structure is conceived as a three-dimensional abstract calligraphic sculpture without compromising on the functional & essential element like Minaret, Central High ceiling & Mimbar. The construction material is Fair Face reinforced concrete, which is devoid of any clichéd ornamentation. A hint of traditional ornamentation has been applied to the specifically custom designed floor tile/panel, which has been derived from the same elements found in the façade of the mosque & Kufi style. It has been conceived as a Black & White tile panel and the proportion of both the color is exactly equal. Same pattern has been used for the metal grill or latticework for the windows / openings.
