LYX Arkitekter has created some amazing designs but the concept of the Pearl Mosque is awesome! The most well-known profession in the United Arab Emirates was pearl diving.

The pearl acts as a dome for the mosque which is a traditional style. It also acts as a window in the ceiling during the day to illuminate the main prayer hall.

The typical mosque will be in the Dubai Creek and the pearl dome will later be converted into a lantern as evening falls in the area. We cannot forget the stunning image of the minaret. As they use standing up and reaching a point, the minaret of the Pearl Mosque will be shaped like a sail emerging from the ground and disappearing into the sky.

The mosque has 8 gates inspired by the belief that there are 8 gates of heaven in Islam and 8 angels on the throne. The arches of the gates are transformed into a shell by merging together and uniting them into the mihrab where the imam stands to lead the prayer.
