As with Mosque V1 Modeling, this most recent proposal for the Shahjalal Mosque was physically modeled and photographed from the same perspectives as the six precedent mosques chosen for Mosque Massing, in order to have a constant to compare differences. It shows how the building deals with the two axis of fabric and mecca, as discussed in Site Axis. It also is located at the South Eastern edge of the park and addresses the street much like a Public House would with little or no boundary between the entrance threshold and the pavement.

As in Mosque Massing, this early proposal for the Shahjalal Mosque was physically modeled and photographed from the same perspectives as the six precedent mosques chosen for Mosque Massing in order to have a constant to compare differences. As discussed in Mosque V1, the building deals with the dictated route axis across the site and the building axis of the exiting fabric. It also starts to create an outdoor room towards the North-East of the site, but is rather awkward in dealing with the Southern edge.

Recently uploaded photographs on my Flickr account including this reinterpretation of Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s perspective sketch of his Altes Museum, found here.

The phrase “a picture says a thousand words” is normally used used because of a beautiful depiction of something. This picture says a lot more than a thousand person survey. The idea of a demographic survey of an area is to understand the racial and cultural diversity, or lack of, in an area. This information can then be represented in a very attractive and easy to understand diagrammatical way. However this photograph tells us both the cultural diversity of the area with the dual language of the sign, and hints at the poor condition of the area with the edges of boarded up windows shown.

This is one of a selection of photographs online on Flickr, which you can look at here, that were taken in Porto, Portugal.

The city is incredibly beautiful and much more accessible with the insertion of a new public railway. It also boasts a large amount of Alvaro Siza buildings including the Serralves Museum, the Faculty of Architecture and Leca Swimming Pools, though try not to grab on to the hand rails. Despite an unbelievable talent in resolving junctions of geometries, for some reason sturdy balustrades escape him. Nobody’s perfect.
