Prince George Islamic Centre

The design of this 7,000 sq ft Islamic Centre unifies the building with its geographic surronding. The building massing rises gently with the topography against the backdrop of the forested escarpment. The dynamic roof forms are created by the intersecting geometries of the orthogonal city grid and the axis to Mecca. The massing culminates in a minaret that rises above the building, topped by an open cupola. As well as being a symbolic element of Islamic architecture, the minaret assists in passive stack ventilation, contributing to the sustainable features of the building.
