Virtual Assembly

Virtual Assembly – Julie Marsh

This is a collection of research on the Old Kent Road Mosque and MANUK (Muslim Association of Nigeria UK) as a reaction to the demolition/renovation of the mosque. The image above is a fragment of the virtual space and archive from this research. Link:

original text description of image: “Shahed Saleem and I commissioned a series of LiDAR scans of Old Kent Road Mosque representing the historical layering and adaptations of the interior of the building. The scans were made by Guy Sinclair from Fab Lab at The University of Westminster. The scans will enter the V&A collection as permanent digital artefacts to create an archived record of sometimes ephemeral and undocumented religious buildings as socially constructed places of worship.” [copied from on 14/03/2023]
