'a versatile approach producing diverse sculptures. The organic shapes have a sense of permanence and strength'

  • Comment

Mangera Yvars Architects' design for a mosque and Islamic centre in London's West Ham eschews traditional Islamic building forms in favour of biomorphic shapes. The complex can incorporate temporary inflatable structures, which refer to the tented structures used by Islamic nomads and will be used for peak festival periods. The structure is formed by overlapping ribs in an arrangement based on traditional Islamic geometric patterns. The project will incorporate photovoltaics, wind-turbine minarets and tidal power.
