VII. 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."
