National Mosque in Kuala Lumpur


Kuala Lumpur’s Masjid Negara Malaysia, or National Mosque, is a large concrete building completed in 1965. The modernist design reflected the aspirations of the newly independent Federation of Malaysia, which later became Malaysia, to break from it past as a British colony and to forge a new forward looking identity.

Location

The mosque is located near the Kuala Lumpur’s old main railway station which is classic example of British colonial architecture, which its distinctive Indo-Saracenic turrets blending Mughal and Moorish design styles but with little reference to Malay culture or architecture. The decision to build the National Mosque so close to this iconic colonial era building is as striking as the architectural contrast between the two buildings.

Modernist Design

The National Mosque is built primarily of concrete using the same engineering techniques that were being employed in Western Europe and North America. The look of the building has been softened since construction with the introduction of embellishments such as coloured tiling, but the original building had much the same brutal industrial appearance that was a distinctive feature of modernist architecture in the West.

Islamic Design Influences

Modernism, however, was also combined with Muslim architectural forms and references to Malay culture. The roof is shaped like a 16 pointed star, there is a 73 metre tall minaret, the galleries around the main prayer hall have clusters of columns reminiscent of a coconut grove, and the series of pools and fountains outside are intended to a be a reference to the peninsula’s heavy monsoon season.
