• 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 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...

  • One Minute Architecture: SANAA Sumida Hokusai Museum

    A visit to Sanaa's Hokusai Museum in Tokyo. I think the building itself is quite beautiful. The brushed metal clad facade and triangular cut wedges are proportionately well balanced, but that's where it all stops. SANAA, Kazuyo Sejima and Rye Nishizawa received the Pritzker prize in 2010 for being "deceptively simple" and for their architecture which "stands out in direct contrast with the bombastic". Ironically great care has been taken by the Sumida-ward who runs the museum to destroy the simplicity of the spaces. Signs and cones are placed everywhere in order to attend people of the sloped walls, windows and staircases, corners. The programme is rather odd with a toilet right next to the entrance reception.

Its position as an art mecca comes thanks to the patronage of its owners, Johnson and his partner, American art critic and curator David Whitney, who both passed away in 2005. Designed initially as Johnson’s residence, the site grew to house the couple’s ever-growing art collection, which includes pieces by Donald Judd, Bruce Nauman and Julian Schnabel.

  • 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...

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."

SANAA, Kazuyo Sejima and Rye Nishizawa received the Pritzker prize in 2010 for being "deceptively simple" and for their architecture which "stands out in direct contrast with the bombastic". Ironically great care has been taken by the Sumida-ward who runs the museum to destroy the simplicity of the spaces. Signs and cones are placed everywhere in order to attend people of the sloped walls, windows and staircases, corners. The programme is rather odd with a toilet right next to the entrance reception. The reception desk, umbrella stands, and other signage are a mere afterthought and don't seem to have been part of the original design. Furthermore, circulation with the main exhibition hall being on the 4th floor and accessible by only two small lifts seems to be problematic as well. It does not look like that Sumida can count on a Bilbao-effect with this building. I'm also curious to know how much Sanaa was involved in the discussion of the programme.

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.

One of the 19 nominees for the 11th Cycle of The Aga Khan Award for Architecture Location: Doha, Qatar (Arabian Peninsula) Architect: Private Engineering Office, Mohamed Ali Abdullah Client: Amiri Diwan Completed: 2008 Design: 2004-2007 Site size: 164'000 m² The origins of the Souk Waqif date from the time when Doha was a village and its inhabitants gathered on the banks of the wadi to buy and sell goods. The revitalisation project, a unique architectural revival of one of the most important heritage sites in Doha, was based on a thorough study of the history of the market and its buildings, and aimed to reverse the dilapidation of the historic structures and remove inappropriate alterations and additions. The architect attempted to rejuvenate the memory of the place: modern buildings were demolished; metal sheeting on roofs was replaced with traditionally built roofs of dangeal wood and bamboo with a binding layer of clay and straw, and traditional strategies to insulate the buildings against extreme heat were re-introduced. Some new features were also introduced, such as a sophisticated lighting system that illuminates the market's streets. In complete contrast to the heritage theme parks that are becoming common in the region, Souk Waqif is both a traditional open-air public space that is used by shoppers, tourists, merchants and residents alike, and a working market.

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.
