The ultimate goal of the project is to propose a design for the revitalization of Al-Ghazali Walk (Road) for the IIUM Community. The project involves designing a façade of a building, flood mitigation, and Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah’s (SHAS) Mosque’s lower courtyard. The concept of the ‘Glimpse-of-Heaven’, using water and vegetation, refers to the design that will relate to the users’ journey to paradise based on Imam Al-Ghazali’s teaching. Architecture and Landscape architecture students played an important role in providing the design for the space that enhances users’ quality of life and helps them to improve their day-to-day activities. Applied Art and Design students contributed to the design by choosing suitable materials to make the design sustainable. Quantity Surveying students assist in the costing of the design to find the most affordable price for the project. In the context of IIUM, to relate the users to a journey to paradise is to create designs that could emanate a spiritual experience. The issue of flooding along the Al-Ghazali road affects the campus society in that the local community no longer has any sense of attachment to the buildings within the road’s vicinity. This project, therefore, aims to restore a sense of place within the community using a design that is manifested by the road’s name – the Al Ghazali Walk.
