Kocaeli / Turkey




Kocaeli / Turkey

The project emphasizes spirituality in religious beliefs. For this reason, in the context of "lightness of weight" massive stone mass is kept upright with elegant and concealed bearings. The elements of the traditional mosque architecture have been reinterpreted. Light plays, material uses and Islamic figures are examples of this.

The pattern consisting of the projection of the muqarnas form extends along the stone mass and defines the minaret. The minaret ends with the form of the simplest component of this muqarnas form. In additional to these, windows that are opened diagonally are designed with Kufi font typology.
