MI’RAJ is one of two parts of the night ascension journey that the Islamic prophet Muhammad took in one night. It has been described as both a physical and spiritual journey. The proposal, MI’RAJ, is about a journey of ascension to prayer and the spatial experience that evolves. As the ascension to prayer begins, a sequence of events unfolds.

Mosque and Cultural Center – Room For Prayer


By placing the new addition of the Islamic Cultural centre next to the existing building we where able to set the parameters and proportions of the new part freely. The new building is raised above the ground by round, slender pillars. The volume is connected to the existing building by a passage, linking the new building to the communication of the existing one. The proposed volume is closed to the outside and opening up on the inside. The concrete facade has an intricate pattern working with shifting planes, creating shadow effects and an elegant and playful expression.

Transparency and simplicity which are the basic principles of Islam, are the most basic fundamentals that shape our proposals.

The habit for arranging the worshipping area with Qibla direction was continued to be organized in a square form. The surrounding for this square form should be a transparent “Glass Lantern”. So that an idea emerged to create a “glass prism” where the carrying blocks and surfaces are formed by the same material in which  the worshipping area will have an visual quality of the highest degree between the exterior day light and the worshipping area. In order to capture strong mystical ambiance, all the verses of the Quran were stamped on the transparent walls and ceiling surfaces.
