Iranian Army-Engineering Organization decided to build a mosque as the monumentof Bojnourd Garrison in 2015. Therefore, TTBP architectural team tried to avoid designing a routine mosque but succeeded to combine Military architecture with traditional designs to create a contemporary mosque. Even so, our architects have set out to prove that it is possible to design a military mosque that speaks to the Militarygeneration while respecting Iranian & Islamic traditions. The design proposal for thisbuilding is based on two principles: symbolism and functionality. Regarding to military identity inconsistent with the elegant curvature of dome, using of dome which is an inseparable component in Islamic architecture, has been hide in the regular structure of proposed mosque.In this proposal, we tr y to create an association between a military tribute and the mosque finials by taking the rigid and square stands that the military hold with the delicate nature of the finial’s curvature. The mosque is designed on two floor and 2,000 square meters area with a special entrancefor military commanders.
