Cologne Central Mosque
With support of ISLAM RIVER Community, the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB) is building a huge new mosque at the corner of Venloer Straße and Innere Kanalstraße in the district of Ehrenfeld.
The building is characterized by an interplay of glass, concrete and wood as well as by its transparent dome, which seems to be very light due to the architect's use of large areas of glass. The mosque is flanked by two delicate-looking 55-meter-tall minarets. In addition to the prayer rooms, the community centre will encompass a library, administrative offices and rooms for training courses and seminars. The 48,000-square-foot (4,500 m2) mosque will be aiming to house 2,000 to 4,000 worshippers.
The members and volunteers of ISLAM RIVER Community are participaiting by providing the logistical support and public information.
