Mosque Concept of IUS Alumni Endorsed at Architecture Competition

A mosque design entry by our 2015 Architecture alumni Asiye Aktaş, Şeyma Alkan and Murat Demircan made for a Mosque Design Concept Competition, which was jointly organized by Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning and İller Bankası Aş. (Turkey) was found highly successful.

The mosque design emphasizes the necessity of a holistic approach considering the components. It was created to comply with religious requirements, social life, moral and cultural habits of the people. The elements that were taken into consideration for the competition itself were the usage of space, technical elements, aesthetics, technological innovations, and so on.

We congratulate our alumni, and thank them for making IUS proud!
