Dear
Janoowala
I am also Researching on mosque architecture, but I am looking to the essence of mosque of Prophet Mohammad (pbuh).
You have a very turning concept for mosque in the world of emerging architecture. If you just go through the historical context of mosque development, you can analyze that how mosque made prominent roll in Muslim society in different ages, like in the Period of Khalifa, Emperors and after that we can see clearly that how mosque has design after World War. But today's scenario is going to change in terms of Technology & culture that we can see in these future mosques.
Your area is a very centrifugal to thing and work on future architecture of mosque.
Your question on effect on the society as a whole, so yes It will effects on the image of Muslim world which developed throughout the history, and today we are Re-Thinking, De-constructing, Re-emerging the Ideas on mosque architecture.
