Islamic Center - Ripples in The Bay
2011
Jaber Al Ahmed Residential City, Kuwait

 

The 18.500 m2 scheme is inspired by the embracing form of Kuwait Bay and the soft natural landscape of the shoreline.
The mosque courtyard takes the form of Kuwait Bay from where ripples create rings of program which include the mosque and education facilities.
The program is arranged in four rings: the Ring of Light, the Ring of Water, the Ring of Knowledge and the Ring of Nature.
The Mosque itself is the ‘Ring of Light’ and it is placed in the southern central portion of the site.
Beyond the outer walls of The Mosque, we have created The‘Ring of Water’, which will act as a transition space between the world outside and the inner sanctum of the mosque.
