    A mature design such as this one is also a reflection of the maturing of tastes of the clients. Awesome work FXFOWLE.

    I tend not to judge a mesjid from the outside, I believe that function should come first. That means a place to park, take off my shoes, wash up, and enter with ease in 120F/50c weather is Key; I dont see exterior elevations decore as being the Key to Architecture. Ease of use is the Key to me.
