Congratulations to Shahed Saleem, Reader in Architecture in the School of Architecture + Cities and BA Architecture DS2.3 tutor. Since the Pavilion’s inception in the days before the pandemic, Saleem has involved students in all aspects of its creation, and over 20 students from our School have helped in its fabrication.

“The Ramadan Pavilion is a purpose-built architectural structure and showpiece of creative art and design to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan. The Pavilion will host a series of public events and two Open Iftars as part of the annual Ramadan Festival curated by Ramadan Tent Project.

The aim of the annual Ramadan Pavilion is to celebrate the lived experiences of Muslims across the UK and globe during the holiest month of the Islamic calendar, and to bring attention to the core values and traditions of Ramadan through architectural expression, experimentation and associated public arts programme. ”
