Topic Highlights

The programme will address themes including the following:

  • Best practice for the planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance of each mosque to ensure standards are met during its complete life cycle
  • Retrofitting mosques in Saudi Arabia
  • Design requirements and techniques to achieve energy efficiency and safety
  • Assessing the costs and benefits of innovative materials and green technology to achieve sustainability standards
  • Accessibility in mosques – for disabled people
  • Making sure getting in and out of mosque areas is safe and secure
  • Mosque integration with the neighborhood
  • Security/Community – parking issues
  • Hierarchy in design, to ensure the spirituality of mosques is not disturbed (prayer room is not right next to the mosque main door – to reduce outside noise disturbing the prayers; transition and barrier zone between the main entrance/exit of the mosque and the prayer room).
  • Attractive landscaping
  • Community shopping at mosques to increase traffic to the mosques (therefore ensuring more security) and to use the revenue generated to cover the mosques cost
  • Smart mosques case studies from the region

The seminar programme is currently being researched and developed.
