Pristina mosque design reflects heritage

The competition Central Mosque of Pristina Competition has announced two second place prizes and no winner.

Organised by the Islamic Community of Kosovo, the competition seeks to create a place “where understanding, humanity, tolerance, respect and sincere love shall be cultivated.”

Slovenian firm SADAR+VUGA was one of the two teams awarded second prize with its  project which was inspired by the old Sultan Mehmet II Mosque in Pristina, which was a design prototype.

Main architectural characteristics as well as the impressive proportions of the old mosque, were studied and interpreted into a new development.

An eventual winner is set to be announced soon.
