The Mosque of Damascus

Year Built: 1590

Location: Damascus, Syria

The Mosque of Damascus paved the way for many payer spaces supported by a series of columns, also known as "hypostyle halls". It is embedded in a thoroughly Byzantine context, and the decorative scheme of mosaics and tile work reflect the desire to incorporate the cultural surroundings into the mosque's design.
