Sakirin Mosque

Istanbul, Turkey


Ksenia Mardina

This new mosque made lots of fuss – it was opened three years ago in the conservative Uskudar district in the Asian part of the town. The large asymmetrical chandelier, a fountain and glass walls – an architecture like this breaks all Islamic rules but the major controversy is that it was designed by a woman, making it a new symbol of women's rights and a crossroads of East and West – actually what the entire Istanbul is about.
