Location
Algiers, Algeria
Year
2020
Client
ANARGEMA

The world’s third largest mosque was built in the Bay of Algiers. It brings various cultural and religious institutions together. The height of the minaret (approx. 265 meters) and the size and dimensions of the entire complex make it a source of impetus with regard to new urban development in Algiers. The Prayer Room is an immense cube, with a capacity of up to 35,000 people. Through the choice of material, the restrained décor, and the indirect lighting, the interior treats visitors to an impressive experience.
