Mosque, in Memoriam of Mimar

Sinan

Location: Kayseri, Turkey

.

This mosque was a proposal for a competition opened in the memoriam of Mimar Sinan. The concept of the design has evolved around the relationships between the city, the public square and the mosque as well as the psychological need to take shelter in a place of worshipThe square of the mosque is at a lower elevation than that of the city, designed as a more private area yet still allowing eye contact. Whilst the mosque creates its own private area, it aims to merge with the town square.
