I hope not. What if the Masjid capacity reaches maximum? They will have to destroy these buildings as well to accomodate more pilgrims.

style is subjective. For example I am not impressed by it's style, just by the details of this project, in wich you can get lost. Thats really interesting.

guys this not the plan for anything!! it's just showing one of the ideas for central Makkah !!
the buildings around the mosque is to demonstrate the distance between the mosque and the surrounding area,again it doesn't represent any thing from the project around the Holy mosque..

this is the actual render for the current mosque extension (the third Saudi Extension)

Atkins' plans to redesign Mecca



Quote:
A video revealing Atkins’ plans for the redevelopment of the Masjid al-Haram, the holiest site in Islam, has been leaked on the internet

A number of British architects, including Norman Foster and Zaha Hadid have been approached to draw up plans to increase the capacity of the mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

The efforts to regenerate Mecca come as the government struggles to accommodate ever increasing numbers of religious tourists who visit on the Hajj and Umra each year. Official figures state some four million pilgrims visited Mecca in 2007 to perform the Hajj.

The government is looking to increase the number of international visas issued to pilgrims, which will place even greater pressure on the city.

Wow! That's great design! It reminds me a bit of Sydney's Opera House.

I still think at least part of the mosque, at least the courtyard and the surrounding structures should be preserved.

I like it, but the mention at the end of the possibility that the Ottoman mosque might be knocked down to make a new building worries me, especially considering the record of the Saudis on these matters.

I hope this question don't gets too offtopic.

Is there a special time in the year for the hadj? If not then if existing, an organisation agency for the hadj could devide the moslemic countries into zones and every zone has it's time in the year to pilgrim to Meccah. I think than the hadj would be less chaotic and more organised.
