A Mosque Designed by Women in Turkey


This is the the ┼×akirin Mosque in Turkey. It's beautiful and it was designed by women. 

According to NPR, which did a story about the mosque in 2008, "Zeynep Fadillioglu is one member of a team of interior designers and architects overseeing the construction of the Sakirin Mosque. It is Fadillioglu's first mosque."

Fadillioglu told NPR that "I think I don't know of any other person — a woman — who has designed a mosque before."
