Deskripsi Tipologi, Klasifikasi dan Analisis Perancangan Masjid di Malaysia
AbstractAs one of the countries with the largest muslim communities in Southeast Asia, the study of Islamic architecture, especially the architecture of modern mosques in Malaysia, has not yet been done intensively. Most of the studies and documentation carried out were more focused in the study of old mosques which were considered as more valuable historically with a more unique traditional architecture. This paper will attempt to describe the typology of form and visual style of the mosques (as the main building of Islamic architecture) developed in Malaysia, ranging from traditional mosques in the area of remote villages to modern mosques in urban areas. This study is very important in recognizing aspects of morphology, the influence, and the development of mosque design in Malaysia which will become a reference in designing the mosque, especially in this country in the future. The discussion itself will consists of the Traditional Vernacular Mosque Architecture of Malaysia, a Sino Eclectic Mosques in Malaysia, the European Classical Mosque in Malaysia, the North Indian Mosque in Malaysia, the Malaysia s Vernacular Mo dern Mosque, the Modern Expressionism Revivalism Mosque in Malaysia and the Post-Modern Mosque in Malaysia. It is expected that this study would give an idea of the various approaches and the development of mosque design in Malaysia in order to recognize the ideas and thoughts of Islamic architecture in Malaysia.
