We found this interesting story from The Guardian today: the small German town of Norderstedt in the northern part of the country is getting a new mosque with a unique feature – wind turbines.
In fact, the minarets themselves (where the muezzin calls to prayer are usually sounded) will house glass rotors, about 22 meters high in the sky. The entire project will cost about 2.5 million Euros and include a mosque and cultural center with shops and offices in Norderstedt. It’s all part of architect Selcuk Ünyilmaz’s design to provide the 200-person congregation with a place of worship that’s progressive and eco-friendly.
Tell us what you think of these plans!
