An Architecture of the Word
Imagine being in a Mouride household—a mosque, residences, stables
and other outbuildings—made completely of reeds. A Mouride holy man
has constructed this stunningly beautiful place because in a vision,
Amadu Bamba told him to venerate the reed pen with which one writes
the Word of God. The work is an architecture of the Word, and the
holy man and his followers live in a space that is "written."
