Mira Schendel

Kamran DibaNamaz Khaneh (Prayer Room), Laleh Park, 1997-78 Tehran.


"This is a sculptural environment, which consists of a small open-to-sky room for prayer and contemplation. The inner room is shielded by an outer shell, which protects it from alien intrusions (visual and street noise). The inner room is rotated within the outer shell to accomplish an axial orientation toward “ghebbleh", the direction Moslems should face when praying."
