  • Obtaining Holiness: Challenges in Modernising Makkah - Ahmed Al-Ali - BOLDtalks Innovation 2015

    For five days every year, the population of Saudi Arabia increases by 3 million. That’s when Muslims visit Mecca for one of the religion’s most sacred rites: the Hajj. Most cities aren’t built to handle this kind of surge capacity. Mecca, however, has to consistently evolve its urban planning that can provide a seamless run to the World’s biggest event. As the tragic stampede at this year’s gathering showed, at a certain density those crowds can become dangerous. To achieve the best and the safest infrastructure, the Saudis have, over the years, turned to a series of the world’s best architects and designers to try to keep millions of pilgrims safe, healthy, awed, and (a few of them) very, very comfortable. Now, in addition to searching for the logistical solution – the authorities are al...

  • IRAN - Mosque Architecture

    Most countries have their very own unique art of architecture, especially countries with an ancient civilization such as Iran. The architecture of mosques in Iran varies from one region to another depending on culture, heritage and the resources available. Each mosque has different styles of tile work, unique color systems and symbolic patterns; however, there are a few common elements common to most of them. One such elements is the "Mehrab," a semicircular niche in the wall that faces the qibla, the direction of the Ka'aba in Mecca, to whose direction Muslims pray. Another common element that all mosques share is the pools situated outside them; the water in the pools symbolizes pureness and cleanliness. The Islamic architectures of mosques have a symbolic significance. Some common fe...

Tents are what humans lived in before we put down roots and began our love affair with bricks and mortar. And no-one is more obsessed with solid, heavy, permanent buildings than the British. To us, the tent is something flimsy and temporary that we will only endure bedding down in on rare occasions. But has civilisation - and architects in particular - unfairly overlooked the brilliant, efficient design of the tent? In an overcrowded world faced with a housing crisis and dwindling natural resources, could the tent be the answer? Tom Dyckhoff thinks it could well be.

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 Makkah Museum will occupy a site seven kilometres from the Grand Mosque, which houses the Kaaba – the most sacred location in the world for Muslims. 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."

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.

Here are 10 mega-construction projects on track to open soon. Many developers, engineers, and architects have grand ideas, but actually pulling off breathtakingly enormous endeavors is something relatively few accomplish. Here are 10 mega-construction projects on track to open soon. Number 10. Beijing Daxing International Airport, China. Despite delays, estimates still place the initial completion stage of what will become the world’s largest airport within this decade. Once fully up an operational, the facility is anticipated to handle roughly 100 million passengers per year. Number 9. Kingdom Tower, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Among the many challenges in erecting epic buildings is securing the required funds, but this mixed-used development has finally surmounted that obstacle. Completion is currently slated for 2020, at which time the Kingdom Tower will likely be named the world’s tallest building.  Number 8. Chernobyl Arch, Ukraine. The 32,000-ton, multi-billion dollar steel structure is intended to keep lingering radioactivity from the 1986 meltdown contained so clean up can move forward. Once installed, likely in 2017, it will remain in use for at least 100 years.  Number 7. Hotel Abraj Kudai, Mecca, Saudi Arabia. When the hotel’s doors open in 2017, the massive hospitality venue will boast the most rooms in the world. The 10,000 spaces it has available far outnumber the roughly 6,000 offered by the current record holder, The MGM Grand Hotel of Las VegasNumber 6. Crossrail Project, London, England. Not only is work progressing at a steady pace, it’s happening in the midst of one of the world’s most populated and bustling cities. The first station was finished in September of 2015 and is expected to start welcoming passengers in 2018. Number 5. Los Angeles Stadium, Inglewood, California. The Rams are officially returning to Los Angeles, and plans to build the team a fancy NFL-worthy stadium are underway. Making the 300-acre arena fan and team-ready is expected to take about 3 years and $2.1 billion. Number 4. Gotthard Base Tunnel, Switzerland. Boring a 35-mile hole in the base of the Swiss Alps is no small undertaking, but persistence has paid off. The tunnel, which will offer quick passage through the mountains, has arranged a grand opening celebration for June of 2016. Number 3. Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Walkway, China. For some, walking across a bridge roughly 1000 feet above solid ground isn’t quite terrifying enough. That group will no doubt be cheering come May of 2016, when this glass-bottomed, 1200-foot long pedestrian passageway – the most elevated and lengthy on the planet - opens.  Number 2. Shanghai Disney Resort, China. Disney creates magic, but it doesn’t happen overnight. After about 7 years of planning and building, the company’s latest theme park will open on June 16th. The expansive grounds include rides, attractions, characters, and entertainment. Right next door is an entire Disney-themed town.  Number 1. World One, Mumbai, India. Among the tallest buildings currently in the works, the entirely residential tower should be ready in 2017. In terms of architecture and design, the massive undertaking has been compared to Chicago’s landmark Willis Tower.  Which mega-construction project do you find most exciting?

Jazak Allah Khair For regular Quran & Islamic updates on Whatsapp Save +447570177530 & whatsapp your name. FB.COM/ILM12 Severe storms and heavy rain caused the crane to fall, the directorate of the Saudi Civil Defense said via Twitter. The Masjid al-Haram surrounds Islam's holiest site, the Kaaba -- a shrine that worshipers visit during the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. Approximately 2 million people a year make the pilgrimage, which this year is due to begin around September 21. A strong thunderstorm popped up over Mecca about 4 p.m. local time Friday (9 a.m. ET), bringing gusty winds which shifted direction and caused the local temperature to drop from 42 to 25 degrees Celsius (107.6 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit.), CNN meteorologists reported. Video shot at a distance from the collapse appeared to show debris and blood on the ground where the crane fell. Another picture from the site showed what appeared to part of a crane on a floor, with debris strewn around it. Khaled Al-Maeena, editor at large at the Saudi Gazette in Jeddah, said the incident happened during a strong thunderstorm. "The scene is of shock ... and people are wondering what happened," he said. "Many of the (Hajj pilgrims) go to Medina first. If this was one or two days before the actual Hajj ... I would have expected that the death toll and the injured and the casualties would have been much higher," Al Maeena said. The Grand Mosque is no stranger to tragedies, often because of the crush of people in Mecca for Haj. In 2006, a stampede killed at least 363 people. That stampede, like others in the past, happened during a stone-throwing ritual in which the pilgrims stone a symbolic devil. Hundreds were killed in stampedes in 2004 and 1998 and 1,426 died in 1990. Islam requires every Muslim who is physically and financially able, to make the journey to Mecca at least once in his/her life. Hajj occurs two months and 10 days after Ramadan ends, during the Islamic month of Dhul-Hijjah.

Hey Tribe! We know you LOVE the technical side of sailing so we put together this special interview with a naval architect. Kiril did an awesome job filming and editing this together, and we sure hope you learn as much as we did! If you like Kiril's editing style check out his channel https://www.youtube.com/user/kirildobrev ! Olivier Racoupeau is a naval architect and has designed cruising yachts for Amel, Wauquiez, Garcia, Beneteau, Fountaine Pajot, and many other custom projects. A few months ago while we were in La Rochelle the team at Amel asked if we would like to interview Olivier, who is responsible for the design of the Amel 55, 64, and the new 50 foot sloop that was just launched. We pretty much jumped at the chance to pick his brain about the differences between modern cruising yachts and those from Delos's era. We learned a lot and hope you do as well! Peace, Love, and Fair Winds from Brian, Karin, and Brady. Subscribe at http://youtube.com/svdelos This is our story, a story of three souls sailing around the world. It is a story about sailing and travel and adventure. But it's also a story about meeting amazing people and making life long friends. It's a story of people living their lives in an alternate way, in close connection with the beautiful people and amazing planet that we call home.

For five days every year, the population of Saudi Arabia increases by 3 million. That’s when Muslims visit Mecca for one of the religion’s most sacred rites: the Hajj. Most cities aren’t built to handle this kind of surge capacity. Mecca, however, has to consistently evolve its urban planning that can provide a seamless run to the World’s biggest event. As the tragic stampede at this year’s gathering showed, at a certain density those crowds can become dangerous. To achieve the best and the safest infrastructure, the Saudis have, over the years, turned to a series of the world’s best architects and designers to try to keep millions of pilgrims safe, healthy, awed, and (a few of them) very, very comfortable. Now, in addition to searching for the logistical solution – the authorities are also aware of the importance of achieving the city’s modernisation while honoring the tenets of Islam. The result is a city of carefully regulated experiences, with more work yet to be done. Ahmed Al-Ali, an architect from the UAE, looks at the Holy City of Makkah as a model for 21st century holy/ sacred city and the unique challenges and solutions that other cities can learn from. Ahmed graduated from the American University of Sharjah with a Degree in Architecture and established his critical design firm X-Architects in 2003 that since has gained continuous recognition and have been exhibited in international reputed venues like Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in London in 2011 and Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen 2014. In 2010, Ahmed was honoured with the prestigious and one of the highest ranked local awards, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Award For Young Business Leaders. Ahmed ardently contributes to various research projects and has collaborated on Abu Dhabi’s Urban Planning Council Building and neighborhood guidelines. He is a board member of the Canadian University of Dubai, the UAE University of Al Ain and the Al Hosn University in Abu Dhabi. He is actively involved in academic spheres and is a recurring critic and lecturer at various educational institutions and associations. Ahmed recently lectured and joined a panel discussion called “Housing the Spring” at Harvard University.

Source: eng-uni.com The new project is envisioned to complete around the year 2020, with interim milestones that will be achieved from now until then. 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.

The FoundationOriental Institute’ in Leiden, The Netherlands: Third Snouck Hurgronje lecture, by the Saudi Arabian architect Dr. Sami Angawi Date: Friday 16 February 2007, 16:00 hrs Place: Lorentz-auditorium, Kamerlingh Onnes Building, Faculty of Law, Steenschuur 25, Leiden, The Netherlands In his lecture Dr. Angawi treats the dangers of an unlimited urban development for the old city centre of Mecca. But the scope of the subject is in fact much wider. All over the world the old is rapidly being replaced by the new, but this is not necessarily always an improvement. Mecca is not a town like any other, but the very centre of Islam and only muslims can enter it. Islam’s earliest history took place here. Millions of pilgrims visit the Holy City every year. How can one then preserve what is valuable and, at the same time, cope with the necessities of the modern age? Since we couldn't save Makkah & Madinah, Let's save their history represented in the Seerah.

Most countries have their very own unique art of architecture, especially countries with an ancient civilization such as Iran. The architecture of mosques in Iran varies from one region to another depending on culture, heritage and the resources available. Each mosque has different styles of tile work, unique color systems and symbolic patterns; however, there are a few common elements common to most of them. One such elements is the "Mehrab," a semicircular niche in the wall that faces the qibla, the direction of the Ka'aba in Mecca, to whose direction Muslims pray. Another common element that all mosques share is the pools situated outside them; the water in the pools symbolizes pureness and cleanliness. The Islamic architectures of mosques have a symbolic significance. Some common features of Islamic mosques are the minarets and domes. The minaret is a tall tower situated at one of the corners of the mosque that provides a visual and a vocal point that are used to call on people for prayers. Domes are another signature of Islamic architecture, symbolically representing the vaults of heaven. The art of tile working in Iran blossomed in the Islamic period. The amazing tile work features beautiful colors, floral displays and calligraphy. The calligraphy is linked to geometry as the proportions of the letters are all governed by mathematics.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLM4S2hGZDSE7GzEU_1dN_ZRShuV5012bB First broadcast: 23 Jun 2014. All architecture begins with the tent. Tents are what humans lived in before we put down roots and began our love affair with bricks and mortar. And no-one is more obsessed with solid, heavy, permanent buildings than the British. To us, the tent is something flimsy and temporary that we will only endure bedding down in on rare occasions. But has civilisation - and architects in particular - unfairly overlooked the brilliant, efficient design of the tent? In an overcrowded world faced with a housing crisis and dwindling natural resources, could the tent be the answer? Tom Dyckhoff thinks it could well be. As festival season begins, Tom's freewheeling journey into the secret life of the tent takes him back to the origins of human habitat: the yurts and tipis of our nomadic past, to the German mecca of high-tech, cutting-edge tensile architecture and to the spiritual home of the modern peace camp where the tent became a symbol of political resistance. 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.
