Hybrid Arc

The Mahmud Qabadu Mosque was designed by Philippe Barriere Collective ( PB + Co ) to become a religious and urban landmark playing a central role within the rural community . It is positioned at the centre of the two-major axis of the urban development , joining the rural park with the main commercial artery and the two large urban pedestrian plazas ( one with shops , the other without ).
