Although the #YEG Turkish Mosque will be a relatively small and modest building, Suat Demirer, sought a source of inspiration that would help him bring together the design concept and make the building appeal the the wider community in Edmonton.
He found that inspiration in the stories of creation described in the holy books of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
- Your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then settled Himself firmly on the Throne... (Qur'an, 7:54)
The building utilizes a total of 6 colors:
- Brown represents the soil/earth and the origin of life
- Dark red represents the color of sunset
