Interiors - Education City

The Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies required a new faculty building for Islamic studies as well as the Education City campus mosque.
The aim of the brief was to create a contemporary co-educational and progressive setting for Islamic education. The implicit requirement was to illustrate that Islamic education can reflect the needs of modern society and in so doing place Qatar at the forefront of the modern Islamic discourse. The building is clad in white GRC panels with inlaid ceramics highlighting selected areas. The tiling has been uniquely developed from a morphing Islamic pattern which has been optimized to respond to the buildings contours. The pattern appears and disappears through the building and can be read as the effective DNA of project.
