We believe that there is no specific form in Islamic architecture which could be a factor of limitation during the process of designing. There is tradition, and many other influences that made different types of mosques during the history. Islam as a religion, in fact, is open and free of constraints and that was our first and main guide during the process of conceptual designing. So we took basic geometric forms, without much hesitation, to create the form. We organized three types, or levels of space: open public space, semi-open public space and intimate sheltered space. The concept is simple and compatible with the overall site. The aim was not to create some special architectural ventures, some monumental designing projects. It was opposite - simple forms for creating the place for everyone, for good interpolation in the whole urban tissue and neighborhood.
