Above shows the second version of the proposed Shahjalal Mosque in Shandy Park. Already shown in Mosque V2 Modeling, it uses pattern work previously discussed in Brick Pattern, Paving Pattern and Etching Pattern, whilst combing styles of traditional Islamic and English domestic and industrial styles as shown in Power Pub and Collision Course. It does not however work programatically and lets itself down by not revealing it’s inspiration in elevational detailing.

A work in progress.

Using the image created in Power Pub as a catalyst in creating the “front” elevation, the elevation which addresses the street, above is a series of sketches showing how found elements are expressed in different ways. One of the major decisions is how the central part of the elevation, which will be the main entrance and houses the building’s major circulation and social space reads externally. Is it expressed as a stand alone element that projects in relief or upwards, or is it the elements used themselves that define the separation of internal spaces and the lines of the elevation are kept consistent all the way across?
