Al Nouri Mosque Complex: competition project awarded
International competition, together with PRODUCTURA and Restaura arquitectos.
Led by PRODUCTORA, our team is one of the winners of the Al Nouri Mosque Complex competition (4th place). In collaboration with PRODUCTORA and the Mexican restoration specialists Andrea Monroy and Diana Fonseca, we designed a proposal based on two plazas flanked by porticos and a large central hypostyle hall as a shaded and cool epicenter for community life. The competition was organised by the UNESCO and is part of a larger effort aiming to restore the urban, social and cultural fabric of the Old City of Mosul following its tragic destruction at the hands of ISIS in between 2014 and 2017.
