Sancaklar Mosque / Emre Arolat Architects

Sancaklar Mosque located in Buyukçekmece, a suburban neighborhood in the outskirts of Istanbul, aims to address the fundamental issues of designing a mosque by distancing itself from the current architectural discussions based on form and focusing solely on the essence of religious space. The project site is located in a prairie landscape that is separated from the surrounding suburban gated communities by a busy highway. The high walls surrounding the park on the upper courtyard of the mosque depict a clear boundary between the chaotic outer world and the serene atmosphere of the public park. The long canopy stretching out from the park becomes the only architectural element visible from the outside.

The interior of the mosque, a simple cave like space, becomes a dramatic and awe inspiring place to pray and be alone with God. AZL architects - Project - Nanjing Wanjing Garden Chapel. The project - a 200 square meter small chapel, is located in Wanjing Garden along Nanjing’s Riverfront.
