Entry Description

The Education City Faculty of Islamic Studies & Campus Mosque is the world’s first contemporary Islamic university that integrates academic space with spiritual/prayer space.
The building is located on the Education City Campus in Doha, Qatar & uniquely for the Muslim world, it provides equality for male/female students through co-educational learning.
The scheme rekindles a high point of Islamic civilization, where architecture had a central role. Using new pedagogies, the university seeks to counter the pejorative image of Islamic education.
