Research, Architecture



Richly symbolic and architecturally stunning, Sydney’s Punchbowl Mosque is a project by Australian firm Candalepas Associates that reached its completion after 20 years in the making.

Candalepas Associates’ Punchbowl Mosque, is a new religious and community centre woven into the urban fabric of one of southwest Sydney’s most culturally diverse localities. A landmark contribution to Australia’s Islamic community, as well as the local architectural landscape, it negotiates with the conventions of the traditional mosque typology through the geometric interplay of hard and soft edges and a raw and austere sense of materiality. Poetically, Punchbowl Mosque searches for what is essential in sacred architecture and, in the process, redefines our understanding of the Australian mosque.
