Pristina Central Mosque Competition Entry
Design: Taller 301
Location: Pristina, Kosovo
Mosque Building in Pristina
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.
In Islamic tradition, the circle is the perfect geometrical figure representing, in an abstract way, the perfect God. The circle and the light are the integrative elements of our design.
Center of a modern community
A community base
A fresh reading of history
A new light / structure
Individual and Collective
All for one
This project will be locally grounded with its array of historical, yet contextual community programs. It will speak to its users by formally providing a range of spaces for relating to God. Simultaneously, it will be a symbol of the world of both Islam and Kosovo’s rich history, laying the groundwork for the future.
