The competition winning mosque located on the east coast of Saudi Arabia is designed as a testament to the modernization and free spirit of a local poet. The Masjid located close to a natural bay is inspired by its proximity the sea and it resonates not as architecture but as natural space. The seashell masjid dome which represents the protection of faith and faith itself which is the peal or spirit in every individual are key elements in the design.
The scheme also incorporates the five pillars of Islam represented by the five minarets around the masjid. These elements will provide a glowing reflection in the water of the bay and will be a symbol of the values from which the community will be built. The use of Islamic Design principles and recognizable elements such as the Dome, Minarets, Water, Landscaping and the use of Calligraphy will help define an urban context and contribute to place-making and orientation. The Masjid will be a focal Point along the seafront and will complete Exhibition Park which is located alongside.
