“Using public art as a platform,

we hope to improve the visibility of Muslim identities in urban spaces.

Public art adds meaning to our cities and character to our neighbourhoods.

A project we’re working on transforms traffic signal boxes.

We applied to #OutsideTheBox2022

Our project “Geometric City” is inspired by Zellige tiles,

a type of mosaic tilework in which each tile piece is individually hand-chiselled into a colourful mosaic.

These tiles can be found on the columns,

doors and walls of Mosque,

Madrasas and other built forms.

learn more about the project & at Zellige tiles.
