ച Easy reader Mosque ඎ Book By David Macaulay ම Grade 5 Up Macaulay s books on architecture are by now an institution in themselves, and this latest addition to the series maintains the high quality of its predecessors Using, as always, a fictional framework to hold his nonfictional material, the author introduces readers to Admiral Suha Mehmet Pasa, a wealthy aristocrat living in Istanbul, who decides in his declining years to fund the building of a mosque and its associated buildings religious school, soup kitchen, public baths, public fountain, and tomb Detailing the activities of the architect and workers, Macaulay creates a from the ground up look not only at the actual construction, but also at the uses of the various buildings, most of which will be unfamiliar to Westerners In his preface, the artist states that he has based his invented mosque on the existing structures of a famous Ottoman architect, Sinan, who worked during the mid to late 16th century While there are many books that introduce Islam and its major beliefs and practices to non Muslim readers, this title provides both a less didactic and arguably effective look at the religion by placing it within a social context, even one as relatively cold as architecture In this way, the admiral, his architect, and their workers are seen as than followers of a faith they are also seen as flesh and blood people who require toilets and baths and who recognize their own mortality.Coop Renner, Fairmeadows Elementary, Duncanville, TXCopyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.Starred Review Gr 6 up Once again Macaulay uses clear words and exemplary drawings to explore a majestic structure s design and construction This time the story takes place in sixteenth century Istanbul, where a wealthy patron has hired an architect to create a mosque and its support buildings The spreads follow the complex through its planning and building, using Macaulay s familiar combination of labeled architectural drawings, sketches showing artisans at work, and thorough descriptions that are, perhaps, technical than in some of his previous titles In his foreword, Macaulay explains that he has based his story on a composite of actual historical people and mosques, and his images and words are filled with accurate details that reveal the history and culture of the time This isn t an introduction to Islam readers will want some basic knowledge of the religion But in his respectful, straightforward explanation of the mosque s design, Macaulay offers an unusual, inspiring perspective into Islamic society that s removed from the charged headlines, and, as in all his work, he conveys a contagious awe and wonder at the design and engineering feats that societies have accomplished Those fascinated by the technical story may want to refer also to Macaulay s Building Big 2001 , which includes an excellent section about the Hagia Sophia Mosque Gillian Engberg Copyright American Library Association All
