The city of Mons needs a mosque to serve its growing Muslim population. Mosques are not traditional to European cities and therefore present certain design challenges. Analysing townscape in terms of ‘Monument and Matrix’ allows the project to address the two sides of a city’s growth; from that which is monumental, massive and fixed, down to the malleable, adapting matrix of streets which grow from old pedestrian routes. This distinction offers two opposing ways to design, with new mosques frequently adhering to the monumental model. This project aims to explore the possibility of a small-scale mosque which is part of the matrix, with a relatable scale and familiar presence in order to encourage cultural and architectural integration.
