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

    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."

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.

From Machu Pichu an amazing work of architecture to the mysterious caveman buildings in the mountains of Russia. Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 6. Stonehenge One of the most well-known ancient mysteries is the monument of Stonehenge, located in the English county of Wiltshire. This is built in a circle using extremely large rocks standing up vertically and is believed to have been built about 2500 BC. One of the biggest rocks found at this site is about 30 feet tall and weighs about 25 tons. What’s truly strange about this is, the closest place they could have gotten the stone from was a quarry about 20 miles away to the north. People at this time, considered the land to be sacred due to fact the abundance of game meat available here. Many theories are out there trying to explain why it was constructed and acted as a symbol of unification, while others believe it was a religious site. Some claim it was built with ball bearings like you see in this photo. 5. Gobekli Tepe Archaeologists came across a startling discovery six miles from Urfa, an ancient city in southeastern Turkey when they dug up massive carved stones believed to be 11 thousand years old. These were made when mankind had yet to develop metal tools or even pottery. The Smithsonian questions whether or not it’s the world’s oldest temple. It predates stonehenge by about 6,000 years. This location would have been a Mecca for hunters and gatherers at that time, centuries before farming was developed. As they dug deeper, they realized it was arranged in a circle, made of limestone blocks. Using only flint tools workers shaped the stone into pillars before moving them a few hundred yards to the site of the temple. 4.Easter Island Many of us think of Easter Island and a tiny little place in the Pacific off the coast of Chile with mysterious heads sticking out from the ground. You have never known that these mysterious wonders get even more mysterious. These were constructed around the years 1250-1500 BC, by people of Polynesian ancestry. Recent discoveries like you see in this photo, prove that these actually have bodies attached to their heads! As people began to dig deeper, they uncovered that the statues fo much deeper than previously thought. They’ve also exposed carvings on their backs and their meanings have yet to be uncovered. Some believe it represents the traditional tribal of their culture. 3. Bosnian Pyramid Many wouldn’t come to Bosnia and expect to see a pyramid. It’s possibly that because it wasn’t discovered until 2005. If the claims are real, the Bosnian Pyramid would be 25000 years old and the oldest pyramid ever built. Archaeologists are extremely skeptical of this because it defies accepted history. If you take a close look at it, it truly takes the form of a man made structure. Many want these extraordinary claims to be backed up by extraordinary evidence before it is accepted among the archaeology community. If it is real, it does deserve a place on our list. Take a look for yourself and let us know what you think in the comment section. Were there advanced civilizations in this area that we didn’t know of? 2. Machu Picchu This is an incredible work of architecture in the middle of the Andes Mountains and shows what kind of feats the Inca Civilization was capable of. There are a few reasons archaeologists believe it was built. Some claim it was a ceremonial site, a military stronghold or even getaway for the ruling elite. Despite not having advanced warfare technology like some of their foes, they still excelled in knowledge pertaining to agriculture, architecture and astronomy. Many of these well crafted stones cannot even be penetrated with a knife, proving how well the stones fit together. 1.Great Pyramids of Giza There is no other wonder of the ancient world quite as mysterious as the ancient pyramids of Giza. No other monument has created so much intrigue other that these feats of engineering that we still couldn’t reproduce to this day. It’s estimated that there’s a total of 2.3 million limestone blocks that weigh at least 2-30 tons each and is precisely aligned with the constellation of orion. The paste used to combine the stones is from an unknown origin and even with all our technology, we cannot reproduce it’s chemical compound. It remained the world's tallest building for 3,800 years and each side is the same length within 10th’s of an inch. All of this was supposedly constructed without the technology of the the wheel or without metal tool. The quarry used to get the stones was at least 500 miles from the location of Giza. It almost appears as though humans could not have succeeded in completing these structures without help from out of this world.
