If it's on the site of the old Madina mosque (that I thought was a warehouse until it got burnt out last year) then it at the "other-end" of Woodville Rd (round the back of The Crwys), in otherwords the bit that most people think is another road. However, from the Render it looks more like it's in Saudia Arabia what with all the Palm Trees!On what street is this going to be built and does anyone know how tall the towers will be ? Fantastic looking building by the way.
They are not building mosque just for fun, they NEED big mosque for capacity of large numbers of people. Mosque is always full, that is a problem.. Even many churches converted to Mosque because most Christian don't pray anymore.To be honest i hope it doesnt happen, you will probaly brand me a racist but i hope it doesnt get built. I disagree with building supersize mosque's in UK cities. I have no problem with small mosque's but big ones in my opinion are diluting our heritage and culture. I mean dont get me wroung its a beatiful building just in the wroung place.
Nope, Atheist will be the majority. Infact, they probably already are. Most people who claims to be christian nowadays are pretty far from it. As was pointed out those people never go and pray anymore, never go to mass. Only use their churches for their ostentatious(sp?) wedding celebrations, which is about as un-chrisitan as you can get.In 50-100 years time the Muslims will be the majority, I guess. We've been out-bred.
You make good points. There are plenty of buildings in Cardiff I could add to your list - like I say, your average McDonalds shed, or PC World.Please clarify what the 'local vernacular architecture' is supposed to be? Victorian gothic? Cardiff Castle? City Hall? Millennium Stadium? Those last two especially could be 'anywhere in the world'.
