Sea Mosque in Abu Dhabi-Prayer Hall by Nikolaos Karintzaidis

Nikolaos Karintzaidis Shares The Sea Mosque in Abu Dhabi Prayer Hall

Nikolaos Karintzaidis, the thinktank behind the award winning project Prayer Hall by Nikolaos Karintzaidis says, With a sensitive implementation on the site, the building becomes a continuation of the sea through a lifted platform serving as a Prayer Hall that expands towards infinite. Fluid formations refer to the motion of the sea in an effort to connect the Mosque to the surroundings. The building stands out reflecting the nature of its function and physically manifests the philosophy of the Middle Eastern architecture in a contemporary manner. The resulting exterior creates both an iconic addition to the skyline and a reinvention of typology realized in a modern design language..
