Islamic Architecture - a future project

We have been told at university that we may potentially look at some Islamic architecture, mainly as a way of broadening our horizons and challenging what we already know.

This was the Paul Stallen Studio's response to a brief that required a new Federal National Council Parliament building that promoted monumental Islamic architecture. Not knowing much about this subject yet makes it hard for me to comment but I think it looks nice...

What did get me thinking however was the way that facade strongly resembles the Adaptive Building Initiative's current projects. I would be interesting to see their technology produced on a large scale...

Their facade systems are dynamic and react to help regulate light and solar gain, ventilation and air flow, privacy and views.
