Access from EThOS:
The mosque is the principal house of worship in Islam. Though pre-eminently a place of congregational prayer, it is also a focus for education and social interaction. This makes it the most significant building-type in Islamic architecture. Current practice, however, reveals considerable confusion over the design principles that are considered applicable and appropriate to the contemporary mosque. The aim of the current research is to help resolve his confusion through systematic study of historic mosque buildings and their components.
