Safe Haven

The mosque is considered an important place of peace for the Islamic community. However, many mosques in Nottingham are surrounded by the hustle and bustle of city life where it can be difficult to find peace.

The stress of daily life is a familiar feeling that all communities share and hold.

As a result, I hope to design a mosque that will serve as a place of reflection for the Islamic community. There will also be a space that reflects the atmosphere of the mosque, in a more public and open manner, for the rest of the community to relieve stress, and trauma and connect with people from different cultures.

BArch Architecture

The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.

The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
