Al-Briq Mosque

Built for the Middle Eastern Setting category of Summer Joust 2019.

 

I decided to build a section of a mosque with its typical elements:

* a minaret

* a carpet for prayer

* mihrab - the niche in the wall, indicating the direction of Mecca

* minbar - the pulpit with stairs, where the imam stands during the prayer

 

Architectural style is mainly inspired by mosques in Morocco.
