Europe’s first Eco-Mosque is opening this year in Cambridge.

The proposed Cambridge mosque aims to be Europe’s first eco-friendly mosque by incorporating specialised design features to minimise carbon emissions.

Additionally, the project’s award-winning London Eye architect, Marks Barfield Architects, are working closely with world renowned sacred geometer, Dr. Keith Critchlow from The Prince’s School of Traditional Arts in London, to include architectural elements from both traditional Islamic architecture as well as the surrounding city of Cambridge in the design.

The mosque will accommodate a congregation of 1,000 worshippers, as well as state of the art teaching areas, meeting rooms, a morgue, a café and an Islamic garden designed by Emma Amina Clark.

Phase one, included the construction of the ramp and basement carpark which has recently been completed and the project is on track to be finally completed by the end of 2018.
