Water Mosque Prayer Hall

With a sensitive implementation on the site, the building becomes a continuation of the sea through a lifted platform serving as a Prayer Hall that expands towards infinite. Fluid formations refer to the motion of the sea in an effort to connect the Mosque to the surroundings. The building stands out reflecting the nature of its function and physically manifests the philosophy of the Middle Eastern architecture in a contemporary manner. The resulting exterior creates both an iconic addition to the skyline and a reinvention of typology realized in a modern design language.
