What would be be a good concept for mosque designing for a residential area in hot country.
The mosques due to their fixed axis towards qibla do not allow to orient them as freely as other buildings with respect to sun and wind but you can reduce the heat gain by using materials of high thermal capacity and add humidity by adding water body and vegetation. The window opening may work if properly arranged.
I would add that a mosque and any sacred building is the right project for an architect to look deep into his heart and find what the Divine is to him/her
Good luck Ahmad
