Mogan Lake Mosque


Urban and Architectural


Mogan Lake Mosque is located adjacent to Mogan Nature Park. • The mosque is developed as a genuine interpretation of the typological context within local set of conditions. In this regard, three significant references were applied from mosque buildings and their evolution under certain plan and mass typologies. 1. Similar to the earliest Islamic temple understanding, the tradition of praying in close proximity to mihrab wall is applied as longitudinal rectangular plan disposition. 2. Influenced by the Ottoman architectural tradition of using stained glass on mihrab walls, the Qibla direction is abstracted into a light wall. 3. The idea of Namazgâh in extra urban settings is expressed in the structure as a set of mihrab walls above an artificial terrace.
