The budget allocated for the mosque is not to exceed 500 M Euros

The future Mosque of Algiers will cost 50 billion DA (500 million Euros)


The Minister of Religious Affairs and Waqf Bouabdallah Ghlamalah said yesterday that an investment of 50 billion DA, or 500 million Euros, will be allowed for the creation of the Great Mosque of Algiers. Speaking at the press conference organized by the Ministry of Communication at the CIP, the minister was keen to point out that what matters is not so much money to be disbursed but the nature of the project which will remain, he says an achievement for future generations. "The mosque will be a true monument to all of Algeria" said Ghlamalah indicating that this high place of worship will be distinguished by its minaret which will be built on several floors. He explained that each floor will be a museum that will trace the different stages in the history of Algeria…

As translated from:

This cost is more realistic than the $9 billion given before.

I also love the 1st design but I dont think it appropriately reflects Islamic custom and tradition. That said, there is nothing wrong with modernizing the Islamic image.

I think the second design is the most appropriate here

They should have invested into industry and education instead.

Phase 8 - based on images on this thread - was smaller then the size of this project in both the model and the new rendering images.

So i doubt Half a million would even pay for the digging process before foundation is laid.

Once again, this is by far a completely waste of time and money.

People living in poverty in that country are far more worthy of billions of dollars then a mosque.

Maybe, and just maybe, the minister of religious affairs can get a clue and commission a study to help feed the people living in poverty, first, before they build us another sectarian mosque which more then likely going to represent a certain sects in ISLAM and not ISLAM itself - just as the case with most of these fancy-looking-mega mosques that serve no purposes in the community other then divide Muslims.
You worked on the Dubai Festival City proyect?? Isn't that where an InterContinental is built at?? am I correct or no?

Grand Mosque Algiers

Voici quelques images du projet de la grande mosquée d'Alger tel qu'il a été imaginé par le bureau d'architecture allemand KSP Engel Und Zimmermann

http://www.ksp-architekten.de/index....&proid=245&L=1

C'est bien sûr un premier croquis, il faudra attendre quelques mois pour voir la version finale du projet

Grande mosquée d’Alger
Lancement des travaux de réalisation fin 2009

Le ministre des Affaires religieuses et des Wakfs, M. Bouabdallah Ghlamallah, a annoncé mercredi 11/03/2009 à Alger que les travaux de réalisation de la Grande mosquée d’Alger seront lancés fin 2009.


Invité du Forum de la Radio du Coran, le ministre a indiqué que les travaux de conception externe de la mosquée ont été achevés à 90%, alors que certaines questions liées aux canalisations de conduites d’eaux usées et de gaz sont en cours d’examen. M. Ghlamallah a fait remarquer qu’une rencontre a été organisée récemment pour l’examen des techniques parasismiques pour garantir la sécurité de cet ouvrage religieux qui s’étend sur 20 hectares.

Concernant la contribution des sociétés algériennes dans la réalisation de ce projet, il a indiqué que ces dernières peuvent y apporter une contribution même partielle pour peu qu’elle soit efficace. La Grande mosquée d’Alger, rappelle-t-on, compte une esplanade et une salle de prière d’une superficie respective de 20000 m², un minaret haut de 300m, une maison du Coran d’une capacité d’accueil de 300 places pédagogiques et un centre culturel islamique d’une superficie de 8000 m². Elle compte également un centre d’exposition, des bibliothèques, des salles dotées de moyens multimédias, des bâtiments administratifs, ainsi qu’un parking de 6000 places, des espaces verts et des points d’eau s’étalant sur 10 hectares.

Not bad, looks quite interesting. Even though design is modern, it preserves the traditional mosque shape... There is a nice combination...

My fear is that the minaret will stand too tall to actually enjoy the details in 'cladding' from groundlevel.

You know, I can't believe that all countries are projecting supertalls except Spain. It's very disappointing.
