The pillars sustained the arches

The Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca was huge. According to a theory, the minaret of this mosque is the tallest religious building in the world. I don't know if this is true or not, but regardless of its size, the structure of this mosque was very sophisticated. It seems to have been designed by a Frenchman, though.

You can see the arches across the corridor lined with columns, and the shadows of the columns are on the ground. What you can see from here consists entirely of straight and curved lines. As I stared at it, I felt as if I had unfortunately wandered into the world of geometry.
