College of Islamic Studies and Mosque
Doha, Qatar

On the Education City campus, the post-graduate college for Islamic studies is fully integrated for male and female students; since the campus lacked prayer facilities, the project also contains a new mosque, and 70,000 square metres of landscaping. The educational facilities comprise classrooms, a library, an auditorium, and faculty housing. The mosque accommodates 6,000 worshippers and is raised from the ground on supports that symbolise the five pillars of Islam; the two inclined minarets rise to a height of 90 metres. All of the buildings are erected in steel to provide large, uninterrupted interior spaces, and all are arranged around courtyards. The landscaping is conceived as an Islamic garden divided into quadrants by four rivers of paradise.
