Just saw this interesting article on BBC News and thought it might be worth a thread in GUD since it's an idea I had never seen before.

Berlin House of One: The first church-mosque-synagogue?
http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-27872551

Berlin thinks it is making religious history as Muslims, Jews and Christians join hands to build a place where they can all worship. The House of One, as it is being called, will be a synagogue, a church and a mosque under one roof.

I like the floor plan. Its great for shootings from the mosque to the synagogue. And its funny that the Church is some sort of a seperated shed to the side. Tells a lot about the regard for the christian belive of the architect*.... ;D

About the design, i dont see to much marrocan in it. Its more like an ancient mesopotamic temple, which somehow makes sence as all three religions are originated in the middle east.



*Okay, it might also be a symbol for the "Birthouse" of our son of god :D
