There is no such a thing ... consult your Art History books!

This is Islamic Architecture pure and true to its origin!

Yes the mosque looks like it would be an amazing piece of architecture when (if) it is completed, but it's hardly something that the people of Iraq really need right now. And in Iraq, something that isn't in need is pretty rare.
you have to consider the context under which it was being built...Iraq's economy at that time was good, let's hope it recovers so Al-Rahman mosque can be finished or turned into a museum or something useful that all Iraqis can use

Do they even proceed construction there? It still seems to look like it used to in 2007.
