  • Tri Wahyu Handayai ST. INTEN Bandung


A mosque can be a signage of a region considering its particular function as a center of worship and symbols of the mosque‘s prosperity. The mosque which is located in tourist areas and shopping centers becomes ambiguous. Because as an activity and a business center for the region, the goal is for secular activities, not religious ones. Trans Studio Bandung (TSB) Grand Mosque seems to be a balance between profane and sacred, let alone shape adapted form of the Prophet's Mosque in Madinnah that makes the TSB Grand Mosque looks special. Through observation and qualitative analysis, the authors compare the elements of the TSB Grand Mosque and the Prophet's Mosque to identification of Islamic oranaments.
