he realization of the Large-Mosque of Algiers enters its active phase. Thus the opening of the folds for the architectural study of this mosque intended to be the third large mosque for the world after those of the Holy Places in Saudi Arabia, is scheduled for next September. Fifty requests emanating for architectural engineering and design departments of fame, distributed through the five continents (Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Belgium, Canada, Spain, South Korea, France, Portugal, England) answered the international invitation to tender launched by Algiers. On which criteria will be made the selection of the engineering and design departments? "It is a question of answering a certain number of conditions and requirements", notes a source close to the file before enumerating them: "the first criterion concerns the workers of the engineering and design department which must be imperatively of a high row; the second criterion milked with the capital and with the guarantees that the engineering and design department in question and third place offers, it will be a question for the engineering and design departments of having experience in the field, which wants to say that they already realized in the past of the similar projects to that which one will subject to them." Another criterion will be also taken into account in this selection: "We will give to these engineering and design departments general orientations on what we wish to do and we will ask them to make us a proposal for an architectural study. And it will be the best study which will be retained." On this subject, it should be known that the large mosque of Algiers will symbolize the time post-independence: "We have mosques which symbolize all the times possible and conceivable, but we do not have no which evokes the period of the post-war period, the large mosque of Algiers will be thus this mosque which will refer to after-independence." Once this stage of the completed architectural study, it will be a question of launching an international invitation to tender of realization. This last will take place, says us one, at the end of 2007 or, at the latest, in at the beginning of 2008. Currently, work for the realization of the large mosque of Algiers is at the stage of expropriation. In other words, it acts of the evacuation of the places (Mohammadia) intended to shelter this mosque of its inhabitants after their compensation. The assistance with the control of work was entrusted to a engineering and design department Canadian Dessau Soprin. The study of the ground, just like the seismic and topographic study, was already carried out, explains us one.

Yet another shining example of why the world would be such a better place if there were no religion.

This project represent EVERYTHING that ISLAM forbids... Just insane amount of money spent on a mosque when Muslims world wide are much worthy of that money and in need of it, especially those living in poverty in Algeria.....

It's absolutely a stupid project! I'm completely disgusted with the news of this project.

This project represents EVERYTHING that is wrong with the Muslim nation... they haven't a clue of what is their priorities..

What's the tall thing on the left? I'm assuming the mosque is the building with the domed roof, not the skyscraper-in-a-fishnet.

For anyone who knows the cost of construction will know that such project would never cost $9 billion. Even Burj Dubai costs only $800 million. This figure of $9 billion is either mis-quoted or the project of the mosque is just a smoke screen to rob the Algerian people of the hard earned oil revenue by some of the corrupt government senior officials.

However,one fact is that none of the two designs would cost more than half a million dollars,unless they intend to fit the interiors in 24 carat gold.

It is really a shame that such an amount would be wasted for a country were the majority of the people are living under the pauverty line.
