Facade mosaics of the Cathedral Mosque in Kogalym
Best Implemented Façade or Interior Project Using Ceramics
About the project
Reconstruction of the facade mosaics included recreation of the elements for the entrance group of the Cathedral Mosque plus the pieces for the arches over the windows. The authors examined the patters carefully along with the attachment method and technology. Some of the surah panels with quotations from the Koran were restored, too, and it was essential to make sure that the sacred texts were reproduced without any mistakes or errors. New ceramic tiles were ordered for the project, and they were even better than the original ones. All the tiles were made in the Moscow-based studio and then transported to Kogalym to be mounted to the restored facades of the Mosque.
