Interesting stuff Kuvvacci. And stunning pics. Amazingly, the pakistani mosque is similar to many Catholic churches designed in Britain in the post war period. Glasgow, Scotland has many such examples.

yes Arpels it is ok ... the reason is not it hasn't minarets. Reason is silly traditions... Our "Relgious Issues Commitee" didn't want a modern design... Dalokay's design for Ankara was modern but of course not the copy of this one he designed for Pakistan. Also new mosques in old shape don't look so good, because of the material

A.R Gombrich says at his famous book " The Story of Art" that "styles don't change at the east"... He gives examples like " when art was progesing at the west, the east still paints icons always in the same style... This is an Byzantian influence on us...

I see Kuvvaci, I understand in part the fear of loose the old traditional style but things change, in civilian buildings is the same, they could very well adapt the new materials with the old tradicional style Saha Faisal is a very good exemple of that.

of course civilian buildings are not like this. And you are right about what you said. I am competely agree with you Arpels. But Shah Faisal is not a traditional style. I wish it was in Ankara insteed of Pakistan.

Ah yes what a lose for Ankara. Shah Faisal was originally going to be Kocatepe Mosque if they had not supported classical Turkish style so blindly
