We proposed a mosque that would serve as a symbolic presence of the historical continuity of the Islamic tradition in Pristina, while referencing the programmatic positioning of the 12 most important already existing mosques of the city. The geometry proposed naturally suggests the orientation of the structure towards Mecca. The structure proposed creates several secondary accesses from all directions assuring connectivity to the city and an outstanding level of pedestrian movability. Compatible, unobtrusive, and tasteful signage, site furnishings, and exterior lighting integrated with the building design, help preserve the identity of the facility and should add to the esthetic quality while blending with local features. To accommodate the time of peak use, site planning principles has considered existing roads, and other important trafﬁc data.
