Istanbul’s first female mosque designer

Istanbul’s first female mosque designer, Zeynep Fadillioglu. Zeynep Fadillioglu is one of Turkey’s best known designers and architects. She has designed the interiors of countless homes and hotels around the globe but her most important assignment was at home in Istanbul where she became the first woman in the Islamic world to design a mosque. Her goal was to create a modern look that would combine with Islamic culture — and she succeeded. Although her design has been criticized as a high society mosque by some traditionalists, it has been accepted by the wider public.
