London-based Mossessian Architecture has won a competition to design
the Makkah Museum, a new building dedicated to the Islamic faith in
Mecca, Saudi Arabia, De Zeen Magazine reports.

The Makkah Museum will occupy a site seven kilometres from the Grand
Mosque, which houses the Kaaba - the most sacred location in the
world for Muslims.

The building will include 5,600 square metres of gallery space to
host exhibitions related to the international practice and history
of Islam and the life of Muhammad.

It will also contain a reception area, an auditorium, book store,
teaching space, roof garden and restaurant.

The Makkah Museum will offer a unique interpretation and reflection
of faith to the millions of Muslims who visit Makkah from around the
world and who, up until this point, have had no cultural institution
of this kind to enhance their visit to the holiest of Muslim cities,"
said a statement from Mossessian.

Mossessian teamed up with Paris exhibition architects Studio Adeline
Rispal to enter the invited competition for the museum project. The
duo were announced as the winners this week.

Established and led by French Armenian architect Michel Mossessian,
Mossessian Architecture is an award-winning London-based architecture
practice.
