The Islamic Complex is a contemporary architecture that evokes the progressive values of the Islamic religion.

Inspired by the parable of light in the Holy Quran, specifically in reference to ‘the light verse’ (An Nur 24:35) where the source of light is described as enclosed in crystal, illuminating like a brilliant star. Hence, the idea to form a dynamic architecture where light penetrates through and into the building is derived from.

The relevance to the religion keeps coming through the reinterpretation of architectural elements. For example, the arches, the screen (mashrabiya), the play of lights and transparency, the courtyards (sehan), and the flowing water feature in the central pavilion (howz).

Synergy between the essence of light, transparency, dynamism, strength, and growth are metaphorically translated into the buildings, which in turn become a statement, a landmark, and most importantly, a representation of Islam’s progressive image.
