Replacing the external dome of a mosque with a concave false ceiling.

Personal Biography

Dr. Murad Kalaldeh graduated from Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany in 1987. He completed his doctoral studies at Graz Technical University, earning the DSc Tech in 2002. He is an accomplished engineer and project manager with experience leading projects for large international clients. Dr. Kalaldeh is also a skilled presenter and keynote speaker on housing and urban development, as well as a distinguished lecturer and author of several books. His practical expertise includes architectural and urban design, construction, project management, and urban planning. Furthermore, he has taught architectural design and urban planning as a lecturer at several Jordanian universities. Dr. Kalaldeh holds the highest professional "Consultant" rank in Urban Design from the Jordanian Engineers Association and has authored or co-authored 11 published books. In addition, Dr. Kalaldeh has practical experience in designing and supervising the execution of the false ceiling of Al-Mansour Mosque in Amman, Jordan. Given that the mosque lacks a structural dome, he proposed creating an artificial internal main dome and sub-domes to compensate for this architectural feature.

Paper Abstract

Mosques are traditionally recognized by their domes; however, the need for roof space has led to competition with solar cells that provide essential energy to the mosques. The designer of Al-Mansour Mosque in Shafa Badran, Amman, Jordan, decided to prioritize solar panels on the roof, which, regrettably, compromised the aesthetic of the internal ceiling. The mosque's supervising committee, overseeing construction and operation, sought the author's expertise for the interior design. The author suggested the construction of main and secondary internal domes and submitted revised false ceiling plans in collaboration with HVAC engineers to ensure a comfortable and climate-controlled environment for the congregation.
