The Flower of God mosque


Description


This is first mosque in the world with a positive electricity balance and an extremely low heat demand. Complex photovoltaic system and solar panels were used for the energy supply producing three times more electricity than required. When the structural part was ready, some changes were introduced by Austrian companies. This led to reducing the heat consumption by 61%, reducing ventilation and cooling by 87% and 80%, taking 30% of the electricity from the city, but produce it themselves. The building of the mosque is designed in the postmodernism style. The main building has a hemispherical shape, consisting of triangular inclined planes, culminating in a dome. Externally, the design of the mosque resembles a flower and at the same time diamond face.
