• Mossessian Architecture to build Islamic faith museum in Mecca

    London studio Mossessian Architecture has won a competition to design the Makkah Museum, a new building dedicated to the Islamic faith in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

It will also contain a reception area, an auditorium, book store, teaching space, roof garden and restaurant.

  • The Atrium Effect - Charles Rice

    Vast interior spaces have become ubiquitous in the contemporary city, from the soaring atriums of mega-hotels, mecca-museums and shopping malls, to the convoluted tubes and endless concourses of transport interchanges, these urban interiors define an increasingly normal experience of being ‘inside’ a city. This lecture explores the tension between inside and outside by discussing the work of American architect John Portman. With the Hyatt Regency Atlanta of 1967, and the Peachtree Centre development, Portman provided a new model for the development of the beleaguered American downtown, until its apotheosis in the 44-storey void of Portman’s Atlanta Marriot Marquis of 1984.

London studio Mossessian Architecture has won a competition to design the Makkah Museum, a new building dedicated to the Islamic faith in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

The building will include 5,600 square metres of gallery space to host exhibitions related to the international practice and history of Islam and the life of Muhammad. It will also contain a reception area, an auditorium, book store, teaching space, roof garden and restaurant. "The Makkah Museum will offer a unique interpretation and reflection of faith to the millions of Muslims who visit Makkah from around the world and who, up until this point, have had no cultural institution of this kind to enhance their visit to the holiest of Muslim cities," said a statement from Mossessian. Mossessian teamed up with Paris exhibition architects Studio Adeline Rispal to enter the invited competition for the museum project. The duo were announced as the winners this week. Rispal designed a central void inside the structure to act as a "virtual minaret" that visitors ascend as they move through the exhibitions. "Mossessian Architecture has delivered this by devising a continuous ramp system to ascend the void, with a parallel spiral staircase for the descent," explained the architects. "Both circular (like the celestial sphere) and ascending (symbolising the spiritual journey), the central minaret-shaped void calls upon the Muslim community to transcend earthly concerns through their faith – and pursuing the quest for knowledge onwards into infinity."

Along the way he discovers that our acceptance of the tent and our openness to alternatives to traditional stone and brick buildings is all a state of mind. The homes of the future could be fabric for all of us.

Taiyo Kogyo Corporation, a manufacturer of large scale membrane structures, has performed the membrane fabrication work of large scale umbrellas (25.5m on each side) for pilgrims visiting the Prophet's Holy Mosque located in Al-Madinah (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). It is known for being one of the two holy mosques of Islam, and contributed to the success of a glorious national project which was officially completed in August 2011. These large scale umbrellas were planned by the Saudi Arabia government to provide sunshades for the Islamic pilgrims who visit the Holy Mosque of Madinah. "Saudi Binladin Group" (President and General Manager:Eng. Bakr Binladen Project Director :Eng. Talaat Mously) , the largest general constructor in the Middle East with considerable experience, was the prime contractor while the engineering, manufacturing, and on-site installation of the umbrella system were performed by Liebherr Intertrading AG (Germany), which is renowned worldwide for its cranes and construction machinery. The large-scale umbrellas, ranging 25.5m on each side consisting mainly of equal squares, are bell-shaped suspension-tensioned membranes, which open and close automatically like folding umbrellas. The total membrane area is 162,000 square meters, and the excellent fabricating skills are required for the complex design. To meet those needs, Taiyo Kogyo Corporation after receiving orders from Liebherr Intertrading AG to fabricate membranes, has built an increasingly automated exclusive production line in the Hirakata factory, which took an active part during the fabrication process of the Osaka Expo (EXPO 70), and the remarkable skills of the workers have been passed on to the younger generations. Taiyo began the production in April 2008 and completed the delivery of the 250th umbrella in May 2010. The membrane material is made from 100% PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) weaving material, which was developed and produced specifically for this project, ensuring the fire resistance for the safety of the pilgrims, long-term durability against the harsh Middle East weather conditions, and flexibility for everyday use. In addition, as the facility itself is a core religious site of the Islamic faith around the world, the splendorous ornamentation far exceeds the norms of any architectural concept in Japan, such as the elaborate designs coloring the membrane and the metal attachments using lavishly gilded gold. The large-scale umbrellas were successfully completed in August 2011, welcoming pilgrims from all over the world in a soft atmosphere. This is the first time for a Japanese company to receive the honor of manufacturing products for the Second Holiest site in the Islamic world. This is because our abundant past achievements all over the world as well as the Japanese distinct "high-quality" product creation were highly valued. Taiyo Kogyo Corporation will continue to contribute people's life of affluence by participating in projects in various parts of the world and providing comfortable high-quality spaces. Characteristics of membrane fabric The membrane material is 100% PTFE (polyterafluoroethylene plastic) weaving material (weight: 900g/m², thickness: 0.6mm) developed especially for this project. PTFE (polyterafluoroethylene plastic) has nonflammable characteristics, being used on items such as frying pans. The membrane material has high durability and is chemically inactive. This enables the membrane to sustain under the harsh Middle East weather conditions for a long term. The material is not coated, this is highly flexible, and enables everyday opening and closing.

According to The Architects Journal, Norman Foster (British architect) and Zaha Hadid (Iraqi architect) have been assigned to work on finalizing the architecture of the new mosque. The new design of the mosque allows the Makkah Mosque to hold more than 3 million Muslim worshipers at a time. The new design of the mosque will house other facilities around the area that include conference halls, residential buildings, command centers to control the flow of traffic, security and other services. The new infrastructure will continue to seek improvements over the current infrastructure by eventually making it extremely easy for pilgrims to get in and out of the Haram Mosque compound with fewer difficulties. The picture above shows the newly proposed design. As can be seen, the multi-storey buildings are part of the new design. The next video shows the new design, while the video following the first video shows the haram mosque as it existed a few decades ago. The two videos show a stark difference between the two designs, clearly showing the enormous effort and capital that has been invested in the expansion of the Haram Mosque at Makkah.
