Architectural international design competition for the Central Mosque of Prishtina. The ambition is to aim for building a landmark in the city of Prishtina and an architecture that stands the test of time. The Project aims to be a symbolic expression of Islamic identity and local tradition of the people of Kosovo and expression of the significance by holding the main role. The building should have a monumental mass and be warm, inviting and attractive at the same time, an open place for all the society.
The mosque should be incorporated into the urban context considering the surrounding built environment. However it should dominate the atmosphere proportionally to its significance as a monumental type of building and its importance in the hierarchy of mosques in the city.
