Great Mosque, Algiers

The world’s third largest mosque is currently under construction 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.
