Da Chang Muslim Cultural Center (Cultural) by Hejingtang Design Studio
2017 - 2018, Platinum A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Based on traditional mosque, the building subtly interprets the spatial structure of mosque with new materials and technologies. The surrounding arches shrink into elegant curves from the bottom up, while the cambering petal-shaped arches of the reflection in the water look even more vivid and graceful. The dome sees the translation and abstraction of Islamic symbols rather than simple mimicking.
Creativity
This is a poetic sanctuary that shows people both the brilliant Islamic culture and our vision for a better life. This is also a homelike cultural center that provides a spiritual home for local residents especially Muslims.
Design Challenges
The surrounding arches shrink into elegant curves from the bottom up.We constitute the dome with petaloid shells and creatively transform the interior space into a semi-exterior roof garden flooded with sunshine, fresh air and vegetation.
Production Technology
