الإشكاليات التصميمية في صحن مسجد الملك المؤسس عبدالله الأول
The study aims to shed light on the reasons which make modern architecture of mosques far from original Islamic architecture features. Taking into consideration that Islamic architecture took into account all functional, environmental, aesthetic and spiritual aspects and the result of study was thoughtfully planned and it didn’t happen by chance. This was done by studying the problem of design in the courtyard of king Abdullah mosque as a form and a model for modern mosques in Jordan where it was found that the mosque in general suffers from some design problems that made it hard to connect it with the Islamic heritage honored.
The first form of the problem is chapel which came in eight shaped form far from the form that should be which is rectangle, as it matches the position of prayers and creates a monotonous in their ranks, taking into account the longest side should be toward Qibla direction and it has a pulpit and Mihrab. The design in the columns, arches and contracts wasn’t fine architecture rather it came out of no thoughtful study in opposition of designs for decades decorating the facades of the corridors in the Islamic mosques.
