Architectural Design for King Salman Mosque is developed following critical analyses on several issues posed by the project context, previously fixed conceptual design parameters, along with technical and cultural requirements of a contemporary place of worship and congregation. Building form is delicately coordinated into a holistic building with a streamlined silhouette, concerning the prestigious nature and prominent location of our undertaking. Several layers of the building envelope, such as the turret, the lower cone and riwaq are blended together in expressively intertwined relationships, which create an architectural setting with clear structural hierarchy and economic use of space. As a result, the multi-storey appearance of the building, an otherwise natural result of the building programme, is minimized. Elements from broader tradition of Islamic Architecture are employed in their conventional uses and purposes, adorned with details and materials borrowed from the vernacular architecture of Maldives.
