Alshate' Mosque

Exterior Refurbishment and Landscape Redesign

Throughout history, the mosque is not only a place of worship but it is a place where communities come together.

Currently, its' role has been reduced to a room for prayer where members of the community gather for a few minutes a day and take their separate ways without interacting with such a sacred space.

spirituality and the sense of community are one and the same.

this project aims at rebuilding the public sphere into a congregation point where the mosque is used heavily at all times, not a mere few minutes.
