Artist and architect Marat Maksudov presented his architectural concepts of the future Muslim places of worship: "Qur'an, the open book", "The month of Ramadan", "Duality of worlds" and a project of façades and inner quarters of Moscow Jum'ah Mosque. An architectural model of a tent mosque in the form of Arabic word "Allah" attracted most interest from the guests. A number of works of artist Renat Simkin was devoted to the history of the Creation and human being according to the Qur'an: "Creation of the Universe", "Scores of peoples", "Revelation of the Holy Scripture", "Opportunities of earthy life" etc.
