The Prophecy Al-Hadeeth Al-Shareef Center Competition
Mishref Area, Kuwait


 


This was a competition entry done with Mr Micheal Gebhart, The objective was to create an Islamic landmark, convey true Islamic values, and highlight the achievements of the Islamic Civilization. Using the basic, geometrically powerful forms of an arc, cylinder, and cube, and materials properly proportioned to the context of the desert’sendless scale achieves the project’s goal. The cube, that symbolizes the “Kaaba,” organizes the “Journey.” The cylinder symbolizes the movement around the “Kaaba.” The curved building fans out to symbolize spreading of the word of Islam and houses the supporting program elements. The fan shape and trellis spokes over the atrium reinforce the idea of disseminating the thoughts of Islam. The plan organization forms a dramatic first image of the curved volume housing the Center’s administration, learning, and support facilities. The four main halls are hidden within the cube, connected by the central atrium interactive zone, which wraps around the hub of the theoretical world,symbolizing the “Journey.”
