26 Deconstructing the American Mosque Islamic Center of Cleveland, Cleveland, Ohio. Photograph ©  by Daud Abdul-Aziz. Courtesy of Daud Abdul-Aziz. 1: The seminal mosque is a spatial paradigm; it is an archetype, which offers a distinct type of spatial order. Architectural convention and subjective meaning have evolved in response to this type of spatial order. In our discourse, this distinction assumes a new idiom: spatial sunnah. 2. Since art is not created ex nihilo, the formative themes of Muslim aesthetics suggest a dialogue between architectural form and religious practice.

There has been much debate over the extent to which Fathy’s attitude towards tectonic building traditions of ancient Nubia is generally accepted outside of its context, and over the extent to which this can be applied as a normative design value designating space and design criteria. Nevertheless, presented with the Abiquiu site as a design problem, Fathy immediately understood the underlying Muslim spatial ethos, which pertains to the concept of Dar al-Islam. Part of that ethos deals with memory or the neglect of memory, so that the sense of existence is created, not ignored.

Aesthetic Origins and End Conditions 33 we have proposed above, the spatial sunnah was established by the Prophet’s masjid (mosque). ’’ Every community (ummah) is free to invoke one or more types of visual expression. This tendency is apparent in succeeding mosques because nowhere is the spatial identity of the ummah more apparent than in the course of designating a place for collective worship. A number of self-conscious, space-making cultural traditions have aided this practice in America. Arguably, the plan of an American edifice could be developed in a number of ways, depending on the aesthetic limitations imposed by the builder, the client, or the patron.
