Too Much to Process

Lots of ideas and avenues this week, but no time to blog yet - maybe this weekend.  After meeting with Paul Catanese again this Tuesday and continuing research, I have come to the conclusion that I need a Iwan (vaulted entry), a Musalla or Prayer Room (the chalking room) and  a Sahn or courtyard (with fountain?) to symbolize mosque architecture.  Hopefully a Mihrab (niche) indication the direction of Kaaba as well?
