In the artist's own words: “The şakirin Camii is a mosque completed this year on the Asian side of Istanbul. Like all architectural projects, it involved a number of designers, including the woman who undertook the interior design: Zeynep Fadıllıoğlu. The light pours in through the screened glass that
lets illumination become a true element in the design. The mihrab, the niche indicating the direction of prayer is bold and solid within this setting, which draws the eye back to the solidity of the ground.”
