I am a fifth year architecture student at California State Polytechnic Universtiy, Pomona and am currently working on my senior research project. My subject pertains to mosque typology and a re-evaluation of what a mosque can potentially be in the current era. I've been really interested in architects who use a contemporary spin in mosque designs and am searching for an architect who I can conduct a phone interview with. It would really be helpful if I could interview an architect who had some sort of insight into this unique issue. I have tried to get a reach of Zeynep Fadillioglu, the female Turkish designer who designed the Sakirin Mosque. Also I have tried to get a hold of Ali Mangera, from MYAA and Farshid Moussavi, from FOA. So far I haven't had any luck. Can you guys think of anyone else I can interview...or perhaps give me some tips on how to reach these fairly famous architects?
Interviewing architects...please help
