Mohammad Qasim Iqbal digitally fabricates brick sacred spaces

 

Designer Mohammad Qasim Iqbal continues his Midjourney explorations experimenting with symmetry and light in brick structures creating a sense of sacredness. Generated through AI technology, the geometrical volumes apply red brick discovering the potential of softness and warmth in the material. The spaces exude the feeling of ethereal calmness as soft light hits the patterned brick walls spreading all over the halls.

 

The digital fabrication draws from Louis Kahn’s projects and his ability to elevate consciously crafted brick structures through the play and use of light, bringing an everlasting feel of the spiritual and sacred to the architectural forms. Therefore, following the three main elements of light, brick, and geometry, the designer prompted for ideal forms that stand harmoniously.

light and geometry form spiritually charged architectures

 

The natural AI image development process of prompt crafting and curation led to the final main feature of the digital spaces, the tensile balance of the structures. Combining brick with a strong grid tensile structure, the designer achieved deep layered intertwined textures. The tensile construction allowed deeper shadows, lifting the brick materiality to more complex surfaces and adding to the overall aesthetic juxtaposition of the spaces. The symmetry of the compositions, as well as the light that spreads on the warm tones of the brick patterns, give off a feeling of sacredness and awe to the spaces that only exist in the digital realm.
