This richly illustrated book introduces readers, through a thoughtful critical analysis, to a unique blend of selected modern mosques in Malaysia. Featuring 353 colourful photographs that are mostly specially photographed by the author, it traces the stylistic developments and striking features of the featured mosques. The author investigated evolutionary stages of mosque architecture in Malaysia and how principles of Islamic architecture were digested within the Malaysian modernistic expression which was influenced by diverse history of colonialism, Islam and regional cultural authenticity. Being so far the only book that focuses on modern mosques in Malaysia, this is the invaluable book for architecture students, researchers as well as those interested in modern mosques architecture especially in Malaysia.
