EU Pavilion Kosovo – 23 Apr 2013
The idea of making a structure somebody could enter into, and be surrounded by, is a response to the need for an artwork that would transform a public space, reviving it. The EU Pavilion idea came from the last stats regarding Kosovans readiness to Join EU (72%). The pavilion is designed to be occupied, providing a quiet space for contemplation with the potential to encourage building trust amongst people of different communities.

Mosque of Prishtina Design – 22 Apr 2013
Typical mosque elements like the dome, minaret, portico are incrusted in our collective memory as the expression of the Islamic religious building. We used all those elements; we redefined them again, and assembled them in the new way, coherent to our contemporary expression and aspirations. The mosque of Prishtina will be the building the people of Kosovo will identify with.

Central Mosque Competition Entry – 22 Apr 2013
For the architects, the design solution for The Central Mosque of Prishtina has as its foundation the notion that Prishtina is a bridge between the East and The West. It could not be a entirely eastern mosque because of Prishtina’s various Western influences, nor could it be a structure modeled after the latest Western trends in design as Prishtina has strong roots in Islamic Culture and history, primarily an Eastern phenomenon.

Prishtina Central Mosque Competition – 19 Apr 2013
Islam is the main religion in Prishtina and Kosovo. This is the reason why the Central Mosque has to be a building-landmark in the city of Prishtina and should dominate and get involved in its urban context. In our design, The Mosque has important and central role in the city. During the analisys of the surrounding built environment, we realized there are two dominants: the Building news agency Rilindja and the boiler chimney of Dardanija (which was an inspiraton for minaret design in our work).

Grand Mosque of Prishtina – 18 Apr 2013
The new Central Mosque occupies a strategic position within the extended urban centre of Prishtina. The main urban road limits two distinct, modern parts of the city here while buildings of outstanding scale and importance are aligned along this mayor car traffic route, which also forms the eastern limit of the project site. A mayor pedestrian route, dense with people throughout the day defines its southern side.

Central Mosque of Pristina – 18 Apr 2013
Kosovo is a country rich in tradition and has had to confront tough issues in recent years. Now, it is a good time to look back, and to see the way forward. The main idea is to re-interpret the elements that constitute the Mosque, without pushing the limits of the already established principles of Islamic Architecture.
