typology

 

ANALYSIS//

While analysing the propositions we were tasked with coming up with a number of criteria to assess it against, one that came out of the interviews was the need for a new typology within mosque design, this ‘british’ mosque is what is sorely lacking in all proposals made to the mosque earlier in the year. This proposal deals with internal spaces within the mosque while not tackling the aesthetics of the outside facade especially the one looking onto the Belgrave Middleway. This analysis page shows that there needs to be interest taken in the these two facades because of the fact they can be seen from a long way down this road, being a prime access route into the city from Birmingham International Airport, the mosque could help create a new ‘British’ mosque typology that other mosque’s being built with the help of the growing Islamic community could be the guideline for.
