    The site in Fayetteville exists as a pivot point between two worlds: the suburban and traditional southern courtyard typology ; a traditional Christian southern town and a growing community of the Muslim faithful; the grain of the street, and the line to Mecca.

    The turn of daily life towards the divine sought to become architecture rooted both in the town and the sacred line, referencing centuries of architectural pedigree with a new hypostyle hall where the play of interior and exterior, light and shadow could itself be a ever-changing ornamentation in a faith of time and contemplation.
