The 360 degree lighting scheme is designed to connect visitors to the lunar cycle. The mosque is bathed in cool white light at full moon, then shifts colour throughout the moon’s cycle, growing gradually bluer as the moon gets smaller. With the clever use of effect lighting, the building takes on the characteristics of the moon with shadows of clouds and variations of light intensity sweeping across the mosque’s façade giving the illusion of clouds sweeping across the moonlit sky.

As per the information from Lighting designer the vast lighting project would take almost six years from concept to completion .

The Lighting design they done for this amazing Mosque is breathtaking  . As a lighting designer as mentioned in my previous posts , i always look for the source of lights,how they mounted it and what fixtures they used to achieve required effect  . So after my visit in came aback and started my research on it  . Below  is what i find out from my research . 

Light Fixture and Technology


Speirs + Major partnered with Pro-light + Sound Middle East exhibitor Martin Professional to provide the required technology to bring their lighting concept for the religious icon to life. There are 1213 Martin Professional colour-changing luminaries illuminating the intricate architecture with varying levels of complexity and sophistication. 

At the Grand Mosque the Martin 1200 profile projector provides the effect lighting for the long throws onto the domes and the minarets and onto the facades around the big open courtyard. It is the luminaire that has the ability to do the textual flow movements mimicking the movement of the cloud ripples, streaming in a west to east direction from Mecca.

The exterior 200s have been used in various positions around the exterior of the mosque to light close into some of the domes giving them the illusion of a base to sit on. They were quite important in the project as they serve to ground some of the architecture.
