The Cologne Central Masjid is a building currently under construction and commissioned by German Muslims of the Organization DITIB for a large, representative Zentralmoschee (central mosque) in Cologne, Germany. After some controversy, the project won the approval of Cologne’s city council.
The masjid is designed in Ottoman architectural style, with glass walls, two minarets and a dome. The masjid is proposed to have a bazaar as well as other secular areas intended for interfaith interactions. As the masjid will be one of Europe’s biggest, it has been criticized for its size, particularly the height of the minarets.
